A generalized equivalent cable bundle method (GECBM) is presented for modeling electromagnetic (EM) compatibility issues of complex cable bundle terminated in arbitrary loads. By introducing a new grouping criterion, complex cable bundles terminated in arbitrary loads can be reasonably simplified through a generalized equivalence procedure. The reduced cable bundle model can be used for modeling electromagnetic immunity, emission and crosstalk problems. The complexity and the computation time for the complete cable bundle modeling has been significantly reduced and fairly good precision is maintained. Numerical simulations are given to validate the efficiency and advantages of the method.
