About this event

If you are an early-career engineer or student wanting to further your knowledge of electromagnetics, this high-level event will provide you with training and opportunities for discussion. A follow-up to the first successful event held in London in September 2017, the event will be conducted in a light hearted manner to maximise your engagement with the topic.

The talks in the morning will cover the history and basics of Electromagnetics, looking at some of the key figures and ideas that have shaped the discipline.

During the afternoon you will take part in hands-on learning opportunities; three workshops conducted in a round-robin style, where you will have the chance to experience electromagnetic tools, techniques and tricks for yourself.

The theme of the event will be: 125 Years of “Electromagnetic Theory” to coincide with the anniversary of Heaviside’s book. We are pleased to be joined by Basil Mahon, the author of the book ‘The Forgotten Genius of Oliver Heaviside.’

Workshops
Workshops will be held in a round robin style, with each delegate getting the opportunity to attend each workshop during the afternoon

  1. Cross Talk Immunization
    Phil Leichauer
    Participants will gain some hands on experience with how to reduce crosstalk in cable runs – using separation, screening, dampening and isolation/ground lift
  2. Filter components and grounding at the PCB level
    Tim Williams, Elmac Services, UK
    EMC mitigation techniques almost always involve filtering at interfaces. While basic low-pass filter design is standard practice in electronics, the impact on performance of unwanted but unavoidable parasitic impedances is sometimes forgotten. To have an effective filter at high frequencies these parasitics must be recognised and controlled. Using a simple jig with a spectrum analyser and tracking generator, this workshop will explore the effect of parasitics on the performance of typical passive component filters, with particular emphasis on the surprising significance of apparently trivial impedances in the ground path.
  3. Introduction to Shield Attenuation
    Paul Duxbury
    This demo will show attendees the principles of measuring the shield attenuation of enclosures and also demonstrate some of the pitfalls which can occur if the enclosure design, and penetrations, are not properly managed.


There will be an informal social evening after the event – details announced on the day
