Learning Outcomes
Upon the successful of the course, the students will have acquired the following skills: - To comprehend and assimilate the fundamental concepts of electromagnetic compatibility, the interference generation mechanisms, their sources and annihilation procedures, the nonlinear operation of devices and crosstalk interactions. - To soundly assimilate the design and construction of shielding and grounding/earthing systems. - To apply the basic measurement methodologies of electromagnetic compatibility gauges and familiarize with the operation of an anechoic chamber. - To design, conduct a full parametric analysis, develop, fabricate and measure (by themselves) a prototype device, as part of a laboratory project. Specifically, to perform the required theoretical sudy of the involved electromagnetic phenomena, to fabricate the prototype by means of specialized laboratory procedures, to simulate their designs through several computational methods, and measure in a variety of real-world scenarios.
