Abstract: The PANDA project is a Research Innovation Action from the European H2020 programme. PANDA will enable the automotive industry to speed up design and testing of innovative electrified vehicles. In the PANDA project, multi-scale and multi-domain simulation packages are developed to interconnect all components of electrified vehicles. The EMR (Energetic Macroscopic Representation) formalism is used to unify the model organization. Moreover, all the models will be shared in a cloud for both stand-alone simulation and cloud computing. On the contrary to existing solutions which are based on a structural philosophy, PANDA is focused on functional-based approach. First results are provided to compare both approaches for the simulation of an electric vehicle. The EMR-based functional library leads to a reduced computation time of 15% in comparison with a structural-based simulation. This results confirms the ability of the PANDA solution for real-time simulation in particular for Hardware-In-the-Loop testing.
