Valeo is an independent group, fully focused on the design, production and sale of components, integrated systems and modules for the automobile industry, mainly for the reduction of CO2 emissions. It is one of the world’s leading automotive suppliers. Valeo is a first tier automotive parts supplier with a worldwide foot print. Investment in Research & Development represents 10% of the Group’s total operating revenues for line fit products.

Valeo Equipement Electriques Moteur is a Tier-1 supplier of the automotive industry, with a wellrecognized know how in electrical machines. In PANDA project, Valeo will use its relevant experience in electrical systems, and especially in those for powertrain. The simulation teams involved in this project have been working for several years to simulate different levels of systems on vehicles. Members of these teams have various experiences concerning e-drives (electrical machines and inverters) and batteries.  Existing models will be adapted/developed in order to have useful multi-scale multi-level models for the hybrid/electric vehicle simulations.

Simulation is a powerful tool to reduce development time and costs. PANDA project will enable Valeo to improve the interfacing of its models with the systems developed by the other partners, in order to have more efficient vehicle simulations that require fewer tests on test-beds.
