How to Build a Virtual Electromagnetic Test Environment for Aerospace and Automotive Platforms
To protect the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of complex systems like aircraft and automobiles, you need a full electromagnetic (EM) model. A virtual test environment allows you to assess a design and ensure system-level compatibility before physical testing. This process has been proven to save more than $1 million compared to an approach based solely on testing.
Learn how to build a virtual test environment to support:
- Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
- Radio frequency interference (RFI)
- Electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) design and verification
This white paper demonstrates a workflow using the electromagnetic simulation environment of Ansys EMA3D Cable. EMA3D Cable is a full-wave, finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) electromagnetic solver that includes a multi-conductor transmission line solver for cables integrated within the FDTD geometry. It is ideal for simulation of complex platforms that include electrical wiring interconnect system cable harnesses.
