DC07 - Comparison of conventional and novel test methods for reverberation chambers (WP5)

Why DC07?

Reverberation chamber is an excellent test environment, but the presence of devices under test might cause performance degradation, therefore we need to accurately analyse electromagnetic field properties when lossy objects and/or devices load the chamber

Host institution



Computations for EMC problems are complex and time-intensive and the EMC group at UNIVPM has the access to European powerful computer resources (HPC) but an integrated approach was not taken therefore the UNIVPM software optimized for HPC resources will benefit the research for DC07.

Models for EM field distribution in semi-enclosed environments with the presence of lossy materials and objects via analysis of propagation parameters as the Power Delay Profile (PDP), Time Delay Spread, Insertion Loss (IL). Development of statistical analysis of the field distributions as function of loss, and coupling through apertures connecting RC and semi-enclosed environments

Expected Results

Integration of WP7 results. Numerical tools for the analysis of electrically large complex structures also including statistical analysis modules.


DC07 trained in electromagnetic numerical simulations on High Performance Computers.

PhD enrolment


Planned secondments
