Computational Electromagnetics

The Advantages of Using Computational Electromagnetics Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) tools allow for highly complex scenarios (lightning effects, high-intensity radiated fields, cable cross talk, etc.) to be evaluated with a high degree of accuracy. EMA has worked on solving these types of problems for well over 40 years. Common questions EMA encounters are with regards to […]

The Intelsat 29e Satellite Failure

Can satellite failures due to space radiation effects be prevented in the future? In early April 2019, the Intelsat 29e Satellite developed a fuel leak and failed soon after. Intelsat says that a micrometeoroid impact or an electrostatic discharge, coupled with a “harness flaw” are the most likely reasons for this mission ending failure. The […]

Using Simulation to Reduce Damage and Maximize Availability in Wind Turbine Applications

Abstract: Lightning effects on wind turbine blades present significant challenges to manufacturers and operators. The industry is skewing heavily towards larger wind turbine blades and more remote locations, and these pose substantial logistical challenges in terms of accessibility, cost of repairs, and increased downtime when issues arise. Particularly in the case of lightning, arcing and […]

Massive Growth In Number of Satellites Brings Unique Challenges

Governments have long been a driving force in the deployment of satellites and other space technologies. What can be seen in the last two decades is a dramatic shift towards the commercial and privatized space industry in launching new and novel satellites and measurement capabilities. As described in this article, a huge focus currently is […]
