ElectroMagnetic Interference Analysis

FEKT-MPA-EMIAcad. year: 2022/2023

Students will be introduced to (a) the mathematical representation of causal, EMC related signals with an emphasis on applications of the Laplace transform; (b) the modeling of electromagnetic (EM) interference of Kirchhoff circuits and transmission lines; (c) the EM emission analysis; (d) the disturbing EM susceptibility analysis.

Learning outcomes of the course unit
