One of the goals of our group is to promote education in the field of Electromagnetic Compatibility, fields, and circuits. These activities are carried out at different levels, from standard undergraduate and graduate courses at Politecnico di Torino, to seminars, tutorials, and short courses at international conferences and institutions. We have been and are involved in several international projects finalized to EMC education.
Testing is a fundamental aspect of EMC. On one hand, compliance of equipment to regulations must always be assessed by testing. On the other hand, tests and measurements provide the ultimate validation of any modeling approach. Our activities in this field are mostly addressed to theoretical analysis and characterization of testing processes. In particular, we concentrated on cable testing for emission/susceptibility using Bulk Current Injection techniques, and on Reverberation Chambers.
Our group owns and maintains a lab facility, mainly for educational purposes. The lab includes basic instrumentation for measurement in time and frequency-domain, which we exploit for validating through direct hardware comparison the results of our research on Signal Integrity modeling and characterization.
In addition to various courses on basic Circuit Theory delivered to students at the BSc level, our group contributes with its expertise in various courses, including
- Surrogate and Compact Modeling: Theory for the User. This is a PhD course on Model Order Reduction and Data-Driven compact model identification.
- Advanced Design for Signal Integrity and Compliance. This is a MSc course providing a fundamental understanding of main signal/power deterioration causes, as well as suitable strategies aimed at robust system design and reliability.
- Complex systems and networks: physical phenomena and social interaction. This elective course provides a general introduction to complex networks and systems with the aim of understanding their key features and behavior. Basic mathematics and tools, with emphasis on the geometric intuition, will be used to explain the possibly complex and sometimes unexpected behavior of systems occurring in many real life examples, from electronics to biology to social science and even the telecommunication networks.
