Hybrid System-Component Model Development for Low-Cost HEMP Testing

Low-Cost HEMP Testing

Project Overview:

This project will create a methodology for modeling components or structures in an electrical system. These models will be used for relating system level events to insults arriving at specific pieces of critical equipment. This will be particularly useful for assessing high-altitude electromagnetic pulse events on the grid by directly relating the coupling of large systems or circuits to individual devices. The goal is to predict what areas of the grid are truly vulnerable and where mitigation technology is needed.
