This paper is concerned with a modeling technique of electromagnetic radiations of power electronics circuits during a switching operation of a power electronic component. The electromagnetic radiating loops are formed by PCB traces assumed to be perfect conductor. We complete our study by proposing a technique using passive loops to reduce the magnetic field emitted by the power electronic converter. To achieve this, we propose to solve Maxwell's equations by using the FDTD method where open boundaries, dielectric board and ground plane are taken into consideration. A validation of the model used in our work (solving Maxwell equations using FDTD) is realized by comparison with other theoretical concepts.
