Summary on Grant Application Form
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - the ability of two nearby circuits to operate without mutual interference - is a serious issue in many industrial applications, and often affects safety issues. This gives rise to a high demand for accurate EMC prediction techniques which can be applied to electrical problems of industrial relevance in a reliable and cost-effective way.The associated technical difficulties are immense since the electrical complexity (which includes the vast array of individual components and how they are inter-connected etc) mean that existing numerical solvers cannot handle such complex configurations in realistic tame and cost scales, if at all. Stochastic variations in real-world configurations add significantly to these difficulties.We aim to develop mathematical, numerical and stochastic homogenization techniques relevant to modelling such systems in a well-defined 'average' sense - removing the need to use full-scale numerical attacks on the unapproximated Maxwell's equations. We plan to apply our results to problems of industrial importance, hopefully providing a method which is practical enough to cope with a wide diversity of electrical systems but which does not compromise accuracy.
