Industrial Artificial Intelligence for Security in Gas Grids (IKIGas)

PSI Software AG and its partners have been awarded the grant for the project "Industrial Artificial Intelligence for Security in Gas Grids" (IKIGas) as part of a research call by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research "Civil Security - Artificial Intelligence in Civil Security Research II".

The goal of the IKIGas research project is to explore innovative and powerful self-learning tools for analysis, prediction and decision support on the state of gas grids.

The focus is to fully exploit the potential of the gas infrastructure for a secure supply of raw materials and energy and to protect it from threats. With the help of Industrial Artificial Intelligence, anomalies that are triggered by natural disasters, geopolitical tensions, terrorism, organized crime and large-scale emergencies can be detected more quickly and to quickly identify appropriate measures more efficiently.

The aim is to strengthen the performance and resilience of the gas grids and to significantly improve the security of supply for industry and citizens as well as to ensure a reliable and uninterrupted supply of energy, heat and raw materials.

A holistic research approach is being set up with interdisciplinary involvement of science, industry and users as well as practical testing. PSI's Gas Grids and Pipelines business unit is leading the consortium and will be responsible for the "Intelligent Control Systems" sub-project.
