Induced Currents on an EUT in a Free-Space and a Modified TEM Cell Environment



Per E. Fornberg, Christopher L. Holloway, Perry F. Wilson


The finite-difference time-domain method is used to investigate whether the currents induced on an equipment under test (EUT) in a TEM cell are similar to those induced in an ideal free-space environment. The approach is to simulate an identical EUT in both environments and determine a correlation based on the respective current distributions. The effect of the EUT size relative to the TEM cell on correlation to free space is also investigated.
