EMC Modeling Demos with FEKO

About 5 years ago, both Professor Mark Steffka and myself set out to merge the IEEE EMC Society manual into the EMC curriculum at the University Of Michigan Dearborn.  And since then, the class has exploded from a routine 15 students per semester, to above 40.  In an effort to continue to keep the class current each year we try to add a new dimension to the curriculum, this keeps the class fun and interesting to the student and this year we've chosen to really expand our LTSpice simulation to model parasitic capacitance and mutual inductance in near field current probes as well as included FEKO which is an electromagnetic modeling and simulation tool.  To integrate it into our laboratory curriculum we've carefully designed a simulation experience for the students to include a more complete view of how electromagnetic fields operate log periodic dipole antennas, near field loop probes, crosstalk and simulating the skin effect on parallel traces on a virtual printed circuit board. 

What I'm looking to share with the EMC society is how we've chosen to integrate these concepts into the already established EMC Laboratory to be able to deliver a more complete EMC experience which allows the students to understand both the theoretical and practical side of the discipline.
