Electronic components and equipment, compatibility - 2021

Protection of equipment and systems against adverse electromagnetic influences


This course provides the basic theoretical and practical knowledge to design, implement, or utilize resources or systems in severe electromagnetic environments.


The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes:

  • 16 lectures and 1.5-hours discussion sessions
  • 1 x 3-hours visit to a test laboratory
  • 1 x 1-hour panel discussion


Focus is given to the protection of systems from the effects of the electromagnetic environment.

Particular importance is given to the simultaneous consideration of all agents of the electromagnetic environment in an approach combining digital simulations and tests (virtual prototyping of electromagnetic hardening).


Course level: Basic

Suitable for engineers and technicians with basic knowledge of electricity and electromagnetism (Maxwell equations, transmission lines, antennas).
