The IET's Electromagnetics Technical and Professional Network will provide an introduction to electromagnetics.  Electromagnetics covers a wide spectrum of practical applications from electrical power generation to wireless communications.  Our understanding of this phenomena is the result of work by many famous scientists including Faraday, Franklin and Heaviside.  This talk will introduce the basic concepts and contributions from these great names and also how Maxwell developed his famous equations.

From these foundations and the advent of computers, numerical simulation tools allow us to visualize electromagnetic fields.  With this insight, engineers and scientists today can investigate and optimize their designs.  A review of some of these practical applications will also be presented in this presentation.

The talk will be given by Dr Richard Chippendale who is a Technical Manager at COMSOL UK specializing in electromagnetic simulations.  He graduated from the University of Southampton in 2009 with a Master’s degree in Physics (Mphys), and continued at the same institution to complete a PhD investigating the interaction of lightning strikes with carbon fibre composites using numerical simulations.  He then spent 4 years as a research fellow at the University of Southampton focusing on high voltage cable simulations for both the onshore and offshore sector.
