PANDA

Powerfull Advanced N-Level Digitalization Architecture for models of electrified vehicles and their components‚Äč

Project Objectives

The main goal of PANDA is to provide a unified organization of digital models to seamlessly integrate virtual and real testing of all types of electrified vehicles and their components. The developed platform and services should¬†reduce by 20% the time-to-market¬†of electrified vehicle development. This includes¬†reducing the electrical vehicle development time and cost by 10%-30%. Additionally, circular economy indicators will be considered in the platform. The project should advance the model-based platform development from TRL 2 to TRL 4.‚Äč

An infographic showing that it is a research and innovation project, with a budget of 3.5 million euros, a duration of 42 months and 11 active partners.

Typhoon’s role as a project partner

Typhoon HIL is the partner responsible for the development of the Hardware-in-the-Loop Electronic Control Unit¬†(HiL-ECU) testbed for real-time validation of three complete electric vehicle models: a battery electric vehicle, a¬†hybrid vehicle, and a plug-in hybrid vehicle. In addition to providing the testbed equipment, Typhoon¬†HIL¬†contributed to three key developments:‚Äč

  • Developing an¬†Energetic Macroscopic Representation (EMR)¬†library of components in collaboration with University of Lille¬†that can be used for free in Typhoon HIL Schematic¬†Editor‚Äč
  • Developing a conversion tool from SIEMENS¬†AMESim¬†software which allows models to be easily imported into the¬†Typhoon HIL testing¬†environment.‚Äč
  • Supporting¬†cloud-based simulations between the¬†HiL-ECU at partner‚Äôs sites and SIEMENS¬†AMESim¬†platform¬†for real-time¬†validation of the full EV model.‚Äč
