»5Gain« focuses on the advantages of a 5G-based infrastructure for the management of cellular energy systems. In combination with AI methods, new possibilities for intelligent grid control emerge.
Cellular Partitioning and Distributed Control of the Energy Network
Due to the decentralized expansion of renewable energy sources with controllable loads and storage (e.g. electric mobility), the control of energy systems is becoming increasingly complex. At the same time, the expansion requirement of the power grid should be kept low. Our approach to solving this challenge is to divide the energy grid into regional cells. Each cell has different participants and characteristics and carries out decentralized load, feed-in management and marketing. We develop adaptive AI procedures (e.g. reinforcement learning), which learn to control the individual energy network.
