A few years ago when I was about to teach another EMC fundamentals course for the industry, I was contacted by some of the participants asking about a textbook for the course. Then I realized that there is no single self‐contained book covering the topics of mathematic, electric circuits and electromagnetics with the focus on EMC. There is a plethora of books devoted to each of these subjects separately and each written for a general audience. It was then that the idea of writing this book was born.
This text reviews the fundamentals of mathematics, electric circuits, and electromagnetics specifically needed for the study of EMC. Each chapter reviews the material pertinent to EMC and concludes with practical EMC examples illustrating the applicability of the discussed topics. The book is intended as a reference and a refresher for both the practicing professionals and the new EMC engineers entering the field.
This book also provides a background material helpful in following the two classical texts on EMC: Clayton Paul’s “Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility” (Wiley, 2006) and Henry Ott’s “Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering” (Wiley, 2009). Many formulas in those two books (presented without derivations) are derived from basic principles in this text.
This approach provides the reader with the understanding of the underlying assumptions and the confidence in using the final results. This insight is invaluable in the field of EMC where so many design rules and ...
