Joint IEM Distinguished Lecturers and IEEE Seminar: Addressing Challenges in Validation of Computational Electromagnetic

Share

Electromagnetics is a fundamental building block of society. It is the cornerstone of almost all the technologies that we are familiar with in our modern lives: from cellular communication to transportation to domestic energy. In its simplest form, it can be summarized by four equations. However, in the main, those four equations cannot be solved directly to design anything other than very simple systems. This means we are reliant on measurements and simulations. These simulations (computational electromagnetics) will provide a very precise answer to the question the modeler poses but is the question the one the modeler actually wanted to ask. Hence, validating such models is important in providing confidence in the simulation process. This is no trivial task. This talk will explore the role of electromagnetics in society today, why computational electromagnetics is important, how we know that what we get is what we intend and how we can improve testing the confidence we can place in these models.

Biography:

Alistair Duffy is Professor of Electromagnetics at De Montfort University, UK, and Director of the university’s Institute of Engineering Sciences. He is a 2022 Visiting Professor at EPFL. Alistair has published approximately 300 peer reviewed papers with a particular focus on electromagnetic compatibility. He is the Immediate Past President of the IEEE EMC Society and will be a Director of the IEEE in 2023 and 2024. He was the Chair of the Working Group that revised IEEE Std 1597.1, which addressed the topic of validation of computational electromagnetics.
