PANDA > Powerful Advanced N-level Digital Architecture for models of electrified vehicles and their components

In PANDA a method has been developed to organise and interconnect models for electrical vehicle (EV) components. Traditionally, internal combustion engines are developed (to a certain extent) independently from the vehicles. In electrified vehicles all systems are more integrated, making it fundamentally more complex to design an EV. Using the PANDA approach all electrical components in an EV can be combined in a single model. Designers can quickly investigate new architectures and components, without having to build a physical prototype first. The method is based on the Energetic Macroscopic Representation (EMR) formalism. In PANDA a cloud of EMR-based models has been developed, that have been experimentally validated a battery electric vehicle (BEV), a fuel-cell vehicle (FCEV) and a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).
