Computational Electromagnetics for Complex Environments


 The Department of Electrical Engineering at the École de Technologie Supérieure and the Power Electronics Society (PELS), Electromagnetic Compatibility Society, and the Electronics Packaging Society Chapters in collaboration with the Industrial Electronics Society (IES), Industry Applications Society, and Power & Energy Society Chapters in the IEEE Montreal Section cordially invites you to a seminar presented by Dr. Amy Pinchuk, President and founder of InField Scientific Inc. Please register using the link provided below.

Seminar Abstract

Electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) analysis for environments such as naval military ships is computationally and pragmatically complex.  E3 attempts to solve problems related to the shipboard topside design, antenna coverage, radar arcs, EMC/EMI between systems, and RF Radiation hazards to personnel, fuel and ordnance. The evolution of computational electromagnetic modelling (CEM) has progressed substantially over the past few decades.  This progression has allowed us to model and analyse increasingly more complex platforms and systems; however, are we converging on solving these real world problems? This talk explores the E3 requirements, CEM evolution, and CEM validity for complex real-life problems.

Dr. Amy Pinchuk of InField Scientific Inc.


Dr. Amy Pinchuk is the president and founder of InField Scientific Inc (1994). InField specializes in electromagnetic compatibility and interference (EMC/EMI), electromagnetic environmental effects (E3), Radiation Hazards (RADHAZ), and computational electromagnetic analysis.  For the past twenty five years, InField's primary focus has been electromagnetic analysis and testing of military shipboard environments for the Royal Canadian Navy and for the New Zealand Royal Navy. She has also taught a Software Engineering course at McGill University. She received her Ph. D. (1988), M. Eng. (1985) and B. Eng. (1983) from McGill University under the supervision of Dr. Peter Silvester. She was a visiting scholar at Cambridge University in England (1985). Dr. Pinchuk is the IEEE Montreal Section Past Chair and the EMC/EPS Montreal Chapter Past Chair. She was a member of the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors, and the Canadian Chair for URSI Section B. She is the author of several children's books which focus on engineering for youngsters.
