About this Webinar

The 2023 R1 release brings many new features and enhanced capabilities to EMA3D Cable and EMA3D Charge. These include integrations with many other Ansys tools, automated workflows, improved support for designers working on EMC, PE-CVD, and space applications, a new Multiple Cable Harness tool, and much more. 

What You Will Learn

Ansys EMA3D Cable
  • New API and interoperability features with Ansys optiSLang, Ansys ModelCenter, Ansys STK, or a user Python script (pyEMA3D.) This feature allows 3D geometry and cables to be programmatically adjusted and the simulation re-run many times without user interaction.
  • New automated workflows that enable full-device and full-vehicle simulation with automatic material assignment from Ansys Granta, automatic meshing, and automatic post-processing with standard electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) limit curves.
  • New Multiple Cable Harness Tool permits the automatic import of additional cable database formats, the automatic joining of different harnesses at connectors, and the rapid assignment of cable termination circuit elements.
Ansys EMA3D Charge
  • New integrated data visualization capabilities within Ansys Discovery complete the analysis of simulation results in the end-to-end workflow of EMA3D Charge. Engineers have optimized access to all 3D, time-varying variables of the EMA3D Charge physics solvers through a GPU-accelerated graphics visualization toolkit.
  • New integration with System Coupling 2.0 allows for the exposure of plasma physics variables in EMA3D Charge to other Ansys physics solvers, emphasizing Multiphysics coupling to Ansys Fluent for modeling heat generation, convection, and dissipation in arc modeling or plasma dynamic models in PE-CVD applications.
  • New seamless integration with Ansys STK enables users to efficiently analyze radiation shielding dose and internal charging in 3D, using the time-varying radiation models available along an ephemeris defined in an active STK session.

Who Should Attend

EMA3D Cable and EMA3D Charge users



is the President and Co-Owner of Electro Magnetic Applications, where he has implemented new system-modeling approaches to simulate the interaction of systems and their electronics with electromagnetic environments in a shorter time, with more accuracy, and at a lower cost. He is also a consultant to NASA and Department of Defense major primes for specialty engineering of critical systems, developing novel nanomaterial solutions to EMI/EMC problems, and execution of major programs that require verification of electromagnetic environmental effects.

Kevin-Druis Merenda Headshot

is a Staff Scientist at Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc (EMA), where he is the Product Manager for EMA3D® Charge. He joined EMA in 2020 to apply his atmospheric electricity and elementary particle physics background to impactful industry projects. With involvement in extensive physics experiments such as the NA62 and LHCB experiments at CERN, or the Pierre Auger Cosmic-Ray Observatory, in Argentina, he knows that every bit of efficiency is needed to achieve the imposed deadlines. Kevin developed strong communication skills by presenting at conferences and publishing journal articles studying lightning-induced transient luminous events. His knowledge of numerical methods, approach to problem diagnostics, and data analysis skills are directly applicable to consulting projects involving EMA3D® Cable and EMA3D® Charge, the software products developed by EMA.
