DC06 - Effects of losses on the field distribution and propagation in complex semi-enclosed environments (WP7)

Why DC06?

Development of novel methods is a key point to improve testing effectiveness, but comparison with existing ones is strongly necessary, therefore we need to compare results in terms of end point quantities such as induced voltage on cabling and components.

Host institution



Computations for the comparison of radiated immunity test methods are complex and time-intensive, and the EMC group at UNIVPM has the access to European powerful computer resources (HPC) but an integrated approach is still under development aimed to include statistical analysis, therefore the UNIVPM software optimized for HPC resources will benefit the research for DC06.
