Are you eager to develop a groundbreaking philosophy on how to assess exchanges of electromagnetic energy between a cable and its environment? Are you fascinated by understanding electromagnetic challenges over large frequency bands? Are you inspired by a project building on the latest metrology techniques to innovative electromagnetic modelling? Then AmiCable could be the PhD project for you!
ElectroMagnetic Interferences (EMI) occur when unwanted conducted or radiated emissions leads to a degradation, or a loss of function, of a product. Adverse events (related to EMI) are exponentially increasing since a decade. Meanwhile, our electromagnetic (EM) environments are restructuring with renewable electricity, innovative co-located products and systems, and an amount of cables expected to double in the next decade. New insights are needed to adapt cabling strategies: cables are the key propagator of EMI. They amplify, catch, and radiate the accumulated parasitic energy generated by devices. This EM noise is highly sensitive to the statistical characteristics of cable systems. This noise propagates through an intricate network of invisible parasitic interactions and generates a complex electromagnetic field. This research work is especially relevant to the medical technology and transportation industries.
You will join the EMC team of the Electrical Energy System group and collaborate with the Electromagnetics group. The research requires a multidisciplinary approach which combines knowledge of EMC, RF design and metrology to tackle both radiative and conducted aspects simultaneously.
Together with our team you will investigate out-of-the-box modeling techniques and create new knowledge in the understanding of EMI propagation in cables. You will be adapting recent metrology development by our research team in the reverberating chamber to the wider challenge of cables. You will lead the design and calibration of test benches leading to the construction of the first of its kind database of parasitic energy transfers. A user committee with major industrial player of the Eindhoven region will provide regular feedback.
