COMPARISON OF RADIATED ELECTROMAGNETIC NOISE PROPAGATION IN AUTOMOBILE TEST SYSTEM AND COMPONENT TEST SYSTEM
3, the radiated electromagnetic noise propagation in the automobile test system was compared with that in the component test system.
Change the radiated electromagnetic noise propagation in the component test system, which is represented by the equivalent circuit shown as the component test system in Figure 16, to the equivalent circuit shown as the automobile test system in the same figure.
Since the propagation loss of radiated electromagnetic noise depends on the parasitic capacitance value, adjust the parasitic capacitance value so that the propagation loss of radiated electromagnetic noise in the automobile test system can be realized.
The results obtained indicate that for the correct operation of the methods of angular spectrum and the Fresnel-Fraunhofer transform, is necessary to use at least three pixels to sample correctly phase jumps of in the kernel of propagation of each method.
Image multiplying and high-frequency oscillations effects in the Fresnel region light propagation simulation.
a) Phase difference for the recorded wavefields of the aperture and its complement at different propagation distances for two different values of pixels PN.
Additionally, during the exponential increase of the cumulative numbers of the infected hosts, the worm's propagation does not need to be stable.
For these, it is considered for some countermeasures to be done in order to stop the propagation of Code Red I during the interval.
That is to say, it can be inferred that huge propagation packets produce denials of network service.
13], in principle, a host infected by Slammer can send propagation packets at 300,000 scans per second at 100 Mbps.
