Syllabus
Prerequisites: Fundamentals of ELECTRICAL SCIENCE and COMPUTATIONAL ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Target skills and knowledge: The main numerical methods for discretizing electromagnetic and multiphysics problems (including, e.g., FEM, PEEC, BEM, MoM) and the main optimization techniques (PSO, DE) are presented. At the end of the course the student will be able to model and optimize electromagnetic devices, either by commercial CAE software (based on FEM) or by in-house software developed under Matlab environment.
Examination methods: The exam consists of an oral test, which includes two questions related to the theoretical contents of the course and a question about laboratory classes. At the beginning of the exam, both files developed in laboratory classes and a report describing the laboratory activity are to be presented.
Assessment criteria: The student has to show a good understanding of the main discretization techniques for modeling electromagnetic devices and has to show a remarkably good command of software used in laboratory classes. The evaluation is graded according to the clarity of presentation and the originality of the approach used in problem solving.
Course unit contents: Application methods and examples for electrostatics (2D FEM, 2D BEM), magnetostatics (FEM), eddy current (2D FEM, 1D PEEC), coupled (2D FEM), propagation (MoM), and optimization problems (PSO, DE). Particular emphasis is placed on discretization techniques not usually implemented in commercial software.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Each lesson of the course is organized into two different steps: 1) the presentation of a numerical method and test cases to be analyzed (by the teacher), 2) the implementation, simulation and validation of the presented test case (up to the student, under the supervision of the teacher).
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lecture notes and teaching material (slides, files useful for implementation) published on MOODLE platform.
