Advanced Time Domain Modeling for Electrical Engineering
Time domain modeling is a fascinating world which brings together several complex phenomena and methods of essential interest to engineers. This book is a reference guide which discusses the most advanced time-domain modeling methods and applications in electromagnetics and electrical engineering.
The book starts by clearly explaining why time-domain modeling may be worth doing; then, it provides guidelines about why some choices must be made among the principal modeling approaches and next guides the reader through the state of the art in time domain modeling, concerning either numerical and analytical methods, and applications. Finally, it highlights areas for future time-domain modeling research.
The book is a collection of chapters written by leading research groups in the fields, following a logical development set out by the editor.
Topics covered include finite element methods in time domain with applications to low-frequency problems; transient analysis of scattering from composite objects using late-time stable TDIEs; the transmission-line modeling method, partial element equivalent circuit method in time-domain; unconditionally stable time-domain methods; time-domain linear macromodeling, analytical techniques for transient analysis; the application of the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) technique to lightning studies; modeling of lightning and its interaction with overhead conductors; transient behaviour of grounding systems; and statistics of electromagnetic reverberation chambers and their simulation through time domain modeling.
