28EMC-Analyzer Application History Since 1998 EMC-Analyzer has been delivered to more than 20 companies in 10 countries of four continents (Europe, Asia, America, Africa)During these years various versions of EMC-Analyzer software have been used by a number of customers for system design, EMC analysis & simulation, frequency assignment, EMC education & training with reference to radio systems deployed at various sites (aircraft, helicopters, satellites, ships, box-bodies, building roofs, antenna towers, airports, etc.)EMC-Analyzer developers contributed significant efforts to cater for high-grade testing of its new versions to achieve its high-quality functioning. Recently the EMC-Analyzer top quality has been recognized and acknowledged. Since 2000 there have been no claims against its quality.
29The errors of the IEMCAP models The “antenna–to–antenna” couplingExamination of the models on the board of B-52 aircraft:190 out of 230 cases (or 82,6%) were correctly predicted.17,4% of the cases included errors.38 (16,5%) - the errors of the first type,2 (0,9%) - the errors of the second type.
30The errors of the IEMCAP models The “antenna–to–antenna” couplingThe examination was carried out onthe board of F-15.Out of 51 cases, 42 were correctly predicted, and 9 cases contained incorrect predications.Out of 42 positive predictions, 35 did not contain the interference, and 17 did.All 9 incorrect predictions were the errors of the first type. There were no errors of the second type.It is an evidence of the fact that the models give the upper estimation of theinterference level.
31The errors of the IEMCAP models The “field–to–wire” and “antenna–to–wire” couplingsIEMCAP predictions are accurate enough for low frequencies (f 10 MHz) (more accurate, than these of many other programs).The error is less than 10 dB for these frequencies. However, the error can reach 50 dB (near the resonance peaks caused by the fuselage and other metallic parts) for the frequencies f > 10 MHz.The analysis for the F15 board :116 out of 121 cases were correctly predicted.All 5 incorrect predictions were the errors of the first type.Errors of the second type were absent!
32The errors of the IEMCAP models The “wire–to–wire” couplingThe accuracy of IEMCAP models (defined as the ratio of the exact value to theapproximate value) is 10 dB for L<0.1, where L - wire length, - wavelength.181 couplings were modeled.152 correct predictions were made.All 29 negative predictions were theerrors of the first type.The models give the upper estimation ofthe interference level, as showed in figure.The increase in the quantity of errors forL>0.1 is caused by several reasons.First, the standing waves appear at thesufficiently high frequencies (they arecaused by reflections from theheterogeneities), and they are not takeninto account.Second, the interaction has resonance character at sufficiently high frequencies and capacitive and inductive couplings cannot be separated.
