Dealing with the COVID 19 pandemic
we take the current situation very seriously and would like to inform you and inform you about the measures we have taken and their effects:
Accessibility and work design: All colleagues from PHYSEC are equipped with notebooks and in the home office. All phone numbers are redirected to the mobile phone numbers of the team. Please don’t be surprised if you’re called from a mobile number.
Personal contacts and business trips: All visits, lectures, workshops and meetings have been postponed or video-conferenced substituted. We have used the various conference tools and are pleased to be able to stay in touch.
Projects and product development: Our engineers are in your work by the change to the home office essentially not restricted. The tools and processes used have been adapted naturally. We are involved in both project implementation and continue to be able to work and are highly motivated, even in top-level research.
We wish you and us according to the current circumstances to get through the pandemic well and hope that the affected measures will improve the situation in the short and medium term.
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
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.

PHYSEC among the Top 10 Start-ups in Germany
We have been honoured by the business magazine BILANZ as one of the top 10 start-ups in Germany. The “Start me up!” competition, in which we were able to present our technology to a jury of experts, took place in Berlin at the beginning of July.
Since 2016, the business magazine BILANZ has annually organized the start-up competition with Germany’s most innovative young companies. Further information on the winners will be available in the next issue of BILANZ.
