Common-Mode Radiation Resulting from Hand-Assembled Cable Bundles on Automotive PlatformsProceedings of the 2006 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (2006, Portland, OR)
AbstractA statistical cable harness model is developed to account for the random disturbance of the wire positions along hand-assembled bundles. The non-uniform random bundles are modeled as n -cascaded segments of uniform multi-conductor transmission line. At each section, all wire positions are disturbed with random numbers obeying a Gaussian distribution. In addition, a spline interpolation function is used to improve the smoothness of wires winding along the bundle. The commonmode current distribution along the bundle calculated with SPICE is injected into a full-wave tool, e.g., FDTD, as impressed current sources. Thus, the full-vehicle electromagnetic emissions from the automotive harness can be predicted efficiently. The model has been experimentally validated with a controlled laboratory setup.
