Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to characterize the interaction of electromagnetic fields and electronic circuits, and the human physiology, as well. They know how to estimate and how to calculate these interactions quantitatively:

--------------------------------------------

 

Students remember fundamental interaction mechanisms of electromagnetic fields (EMF) and electronic devices as well as physiological interaction of EMF and human body. They achieve specific literature research skills.

 

They understand interaction mechanisms of EMF coupling (low frequency) and EMFW (RF frequency) coupling into electronic devices and printed circuit boards (PCB), thus understanding the framework of electromagnetic compatibility, as well as understanding thermal and non thermal interactions of EMF and EMFW with human body tissue.

 

Students apply fundamental concepts of electromagnetic compatibility as well as precaution human EMFW safety concepts.

 

They are able to analyze complex multi frequency exposition scenarios by applying specific measurement apparatus and measurement techniques.

 

Students will be able to evaluate complex EMFW exposition, considering  international standardization, regulatory framework, business environment, and social framework. They achieve skills to represent well defined positions in controversial discussions, e.g. regarding safety values.

 

Finally, students will be able to formulate original concepts fulfilling complex measurement tasks. They acquire skills to evaluate various exposition scenarios, and they will be able to originally contribute to scientific work.

Additional information

Einführung und gleichzeitig erste Vorlesung sind am DO, 7. März 2024 um 10:00 Uhr. 

Wir informieren Sie per TISS-News regelmäßig bezüglich des zeitlichen Ablaufs.

Die Lehrveranstaltung wird neu strukturiert angeboten, siehe 
"Lehrziel" und "Lehrinhalt". Sie basiert auf den Grundkenntnissen aus der Pflicht-LVA Wellenausbreitung.

ORT UND ZEIT: Immer Donnerstag, von 10:00 bis 14:00 Uhr 

im Seminaraum 118 des 
Institute of Telecommunications, Gußhausstraße 25, Stiege 10, 1. Stock, CG0118.

Bitte abonnieren Sie die Lehrveranstaltung in TISS, Sie erhalten dann regelmäßig Informationen 
über Termine, Skripten, die Ubungsteile der LVA, die Exkursionen und über die Messübung.

Maximale TeilnehmerInnenzahl: 25

Eine LVA-Einheit wird in Form eines Mess- und Laborblocks mit HF-Messungen am Institut 389 abgehalten.

Für Mai / Juni 2024 sind Exkursionen ins Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), Forschungszentrum Seibersdorf, NÖ geplant, in deren Rahmen es die Möglichkeit gibt, selbst NF- und HF-Messungen durchzuführen. 

SKRIPTUM: in deutscher Sprache, momentan in mehreren Teilen zum Download aus TISS
