Improved Workflow Integration for Electromagnetic
Simulation of EMC Applications in CST STUDIO SUITE 2011
Users of CST STUDIO SUITE 2011, interested in the analysis of radiated emissions and susceptibility, will benefit from a single unified environment for all EMC related modeling tasks, including greatly simplified model set up and simulation. The CST MWS TLM solver (Microstripes) and CST CS provide powerful features for "real world" EMC analysis including coupled simulations which enable large system analysis and installed performance studies. In preprocessing, the definition of compact equivalent aperture models and cable harnesses will be performed in CST's familiar design environment. Coupling between the electromagnetic field and cable solvers is further enhanced to enable direct transient simulation of susceptibility problems in systems containing complex cable bundles, including shielded twisted pair circuits.
For the TLM solver, and users working on casings or enclosures, a new more automated surface extraction tool allows the easy application of "compact aperture models" and frequencydependent "thin panel" or "absorbing panel" material properties to imported CAD geometry, for shielding effectiveness analysis.
In CST CS, greatly improved shield modeling correctly captures diffusion through solid and braided shields. Also, arbitrary cable transfer impedance data can be imported and applied.
"The full integration into CST STUDIO SUITE of the TLM solving engine plus the cable solver, gives EMC engineers an excellent environment for radiated emission and susceptibility analysis of complex systems", commented David Johns, VP Engineering and Support.
CST STUDIO SUITE 2011 is scheduled for release in January 2011.
