Abstract

The finite difference time domain (FDTD) method is used to investigate if the currents induced on equipment under test (EUT) in a transverse electromagnetic (TEM) cell are similar to those induced in a 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 to TEM cell size on the correlation to free space is also investigated.
