This paper introduces a method for modeling and simulation of a production system with different energy modes. We aim to save the energy in an assembly automobile production line platform using sensitive sensors. A new prototype model is proposed using an extension of Petri nets called GR-TNCES (generalized reconfigurable timed net condition event systems). We also present a simulation of this model with a proposed tool ZIZO to show the energy gain compared to standard production line model.
