As the influence of renewable energy grows, also the flexible storage of energy in batteries gains in importance. One aspect is constructing battery load schedules, which provide charging and discharging periods while considering the properties of battery and power grid. The main challenge is to deal with the nonlinear loss of energy while discharging the battery. In this talk, we will describe the Battery Scheduling Problem and discuss different solving strategies. Taking into account sudden changes in the parameters, we need a strategy which finds good solutions in a reasonable time.
