Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

EMC measurements. Frequency behavior  of passive components. Conducted emission. Radiation from wires and apertures. Cross-talk between transmission lines. Shielding of electric and magnetic fields. Grounding. Laboratory assignments.

Intended learning outcomes

The course provides basic understanding of how electromagnetic disturbances appear in, propagate and influence electromagnetic components and systems. Moreover, the participant acquires knowledge about methods and strategies that reduce the influence of disturbances.

After completion of the course, the participant shall be able to

  • construct simple models that describe non-ideal properties for electrical components
  • understand and apply the concept of zone-division in electrical systems
  • analyse cross-talk in multiconductor systems
  • identify low frequency (electric and magnetic) coupling mechanisms and calculate simple examples
  • identify high frequency (electromagnetic) coupling mechanisms and calculate simple examples
  • design effective shielding devices and filters
  • describe typical misconceptions in designs

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Examination

  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 3,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • TEN1 - Written Exam, 4,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade

Approved laboratory assignments and written exam.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
