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
