5Gain – 5G infrastructures for cellular energy systems using artificial intelligence
PHYSEC is part of the BMWi-funded project »5Gain – 5G infrastructures for cellular energy systems using artificial intelligence« with the purpose of developing and assessing 5G-based communication for the distributed control of cellular energy systems.
Due to the expansion of decentralized, renewable energy sources as well as controllable loads and storage, the control of energy systems is becoming increasingly complex. One solution approach is to divide the energy network into cells. Within these cells, a decentralized, autonomous load and feed-in management is carried out.
The project is intended to optimise the regional extraction and production behaviour by means of machine learning methods. In this context, the development of billing procedures should be made possible through the use of smart contracts.
Based on high requirements for speed, scalability and reliability, 5G networks meet the requirements of a highly mobile and fully networked society. The research project is therefore based on additional services that are only possible with 5G networks. This includes the data-rate intensive and automated remote maintenance of distributed infrastructures using drones.
PHYSEC is working on the development of a security architecture for the secure connection of network information via LPWAN (5G, NB-IoT..). Furthermore, we are responsible for the cyber-physical condition monitoring (integrity) of the distributed infrastructures.
