Simulation on EMI

As a mathematical tool eventually, simulation can help to quickly approach the results that we need. If everything is done in right way, simulation can give us reliable conductive EMI results at the low frequency range.

Differential mode conductive EMI can be simulated with good accuracy at the low frequency range. The accuracy of common mode conductive EMI depends on the accuracy of a few parasitic parameters that need to be measured.

Personally for research, I would like to use simulation as a validation tool for calculation, and test results of prototypes can be used as proof for simulation.

E.g. for EMI filter:

1. Do the calculation for the differential mode conductive EMI filter;
2. Do the calculation for common mode conductive EMI filter base upon the parasitic parameters in the hand or estimation;
3. Use the simulation to check and validate if the calculation is right or if something is wrong and needs to be corrected;
4. Use prototype test results to check and validate if the simulation results are right.

Some other issues that caused by EMI filter can be found during system level simulation before prototyping. E.g. audio susceptibility and EMI filter damping problems.
