Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course covers, how electromagnetic disturbances arise and propagate in electrical systems, thereby influencing the constituent components and methods to reduce the disturbances.

Measurements in EMC (electromagnetic compatibility). Frequency dependence of electrical components. Conducted disturbances. Radiation from wires and apertures. Crosstalk between transmission lines. Shielding of electric and magnetic fields. Grounding. Laboratory work.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to

  • analyse electrical systems by means of models that describe non-ideal properties of electrical components
  • apply the zoning concept on electrical systems
  • analyse crosstalk in multi-conductor systems
  • design efficient surge protection and filters
  • design efficient shielding
  • explain typical construction errors within the scope of the course.

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites

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


  • 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

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.

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.
