Abstract: This paper is to analyze the EMP coupling to cables using 3D EM Modeling and Simulation Analysis. Bounded wave transmission line structure as per MIL-STD 461, RS105 EMP requirement in terms of peak electric field of 50KV/m with rise time-2.3ns and pulse width-25ns was developed. Single conductor cable, RF Coaxial cable were modeled. EMP Coupling to cables was carried out by placing the cable under generated EMP field in terms of induced voltage and currents due to EMP fields. EMP coupling to active line with matched termination also analyzed.
Keywords: Electromagnetic pulse (EMP), Bounded wave
Transmission line, cables.

Scope of the Article: Low-power design
