Abstract

Cables and electronic devices typically employ electromagnetic shields to prevent coupling from external radiation. The imperfect nature of these shields allows external electric and magnetic fields to induce unwanted currents and voltages on the inner conductor by penetrating into the interior regions of the cable. In this paper, we verify a circuit model tool using a previously proposed analytic model [1], by evaluating induced currents and voltages on the inner conductor of the shielded cable. Comparisons with experiments are also provided, aimed to validate the proposed circuit model. We foresee that this circuit model will enable coupling between electromagnetic and circuit simulations.
