Content and learning outcomes
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.
- LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 3.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Written Exam, 4.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
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
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- 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.
