This paper introduces a novel approach to assess the shielding effectiveness of coaxial cables design by combining the numerical electromagnetic modeling and an analytical solution. A simplified numerical 3D model is built with the software CST microwaves. The 3D model is limited by the complexity of the braided structure of the coaxial cable's shield. Hence, in this model, the woven structure of the braided shield is simplified by using nonwoven crossed strands. The effect of the weaving is added separately using an analytical solution. A comparison between measurement results extracted from literature, raw results of simulation and simulation results corrected with analytical formula is given. Finally the relevance of the presented method is discussed.

FDTD method is an effective approach for electromagnetic pulse (EMP) problems simulation. However, simulating EMP propagating over large area with conventional FDTD is not applicable, even with the state-of-art super-computers due to the numerous computations required. In this paper, an FDTD method with multi-level parallel computation techniques and adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) strategy is proposed to solve EMP propagation over a large area. Numerical example shows the computation time decrease down to 20% while preserving excellent precision. The parallel AMR FDTD method is capable of simulating EMP propagation in city as shown in the example.

This paper describes the latest cable modeling improvements added to the electromagnetic field solver Feko. Covered topics include relaxing the high frequency cable-to- installation height restriction; extending the options to model a cable shield through direct modeling of a double shield and adding single-layered braided shield formulas by Tyni and Demoulin; hybridisation of the finite difference time domain (FDTD) solver with an irradiating cable solution; optimisation of time critical cable solver phases.

To study the problem of electromagnetic coupling in the power transmission network by modeling, generally the theory of Multiconductor Transmission Line (MTLs) is adopted. The formalism proposed in the literature is now well known, realized in two steps, calculation of the emitted electromagnetic field and then the resolution of the coupling equations of the MTLs. In this work, we propose a realistic time domain approach that directly treats the electromagnetic coupling in air insulation substation in one step and without having to calculate the electromagnetic wave emitted by the lines and bus bar. To achieve this we use the topological electromagnetic formalism and we consider simultaneously the transmitter (line and busbar) and the receiver (control cable) in the same mathematical equation. To validate our work, we propose an application where we consider an operation of a closing a circuit breaker inside substation
