Scott Piper

Topic: EMC modeling and simulation approaches

Many engineers are drawn to modeling and simulation approaches in general because of uncertainties of rules of thumb and the costliness of prototype testing. As computers become more powerful and more affordable many engineers have turned to 3D full wave electromagnetic field solver tools to assist in optimizing designs for EMC. This means there is a very high likelihood that an engineer will either directly use EM Modeling software or encounter data generated from EM modeling software. In either case, it’s important to know some of the background on some of the issues associated with simulation tools in order to apply engineering judgment to the data.

Biography: Scott Piper was born and raised in Canton, Michigan and has been a licensed amateur radio operator since he was 12 years old. Scott received a BSE in electrical engineering in 2004 from the University of Michigan – Dearborn. Since then, Scott has worked as an EMC test engineer for 5 years at an aerospace company near Chicago, Illinois where he also was tasked with introducing a full wave EMC modeling tool at his company. Scott is currently an employee of Gentex Corporation, which is a company in western Michigan that supplies electronic rear view mirrors for automobiles and dimming aircraft windows. Scott works for Gentex as an EMC simulation engineer and has introduced a full wave EMC modeling tool there as well. Scott is active in the IEEE EMC Society and currently is a member of GOLD and the IEEE EMC Society SC-3, special committee on Transportation Systems EMC.
