Number 18-sc-1010-pr
Lecturers Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schöps
Type Software lab
Semester Summer
Language German or English
Content The aim of the course is to give the participants a practical idea of the basics of numerical simulation methods. In practical programming work on the computer, simple techniques and algorithms from typical simulation programs are to be implemented. The focus is on the finite integration technique (FIT).
Number 18-sc-1020-pj
Lecturers Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schöps and Prof. Dr.-Ing Herbert de Gersem
Type Projektseminar
Semester Summer and Winter
Language German or English
Content: Study of a more complex project in the field of numerical field computation on a computer using commercial, institute-owned or self-written software. The project topics are agreed individually at the beginning of the semester, examples can be found here.
Number 18-sc-2010-vl
Lecturers Dr.-Ing. Idoia Cortes Garcia
Type Lecture
Semester Summer
Language German or English
Content Students understand the theoretical and numerical fundamentals of circuit simulation and how the equations can be derived from Maxwell's equations. Circuit properties can be expressed in tems of graph theory. The sparse systems of equations such as the flux/charge oreinted modified nodal analysis can be assembled. In order to solve the obtained systems, different numerical methods for the simulation of circuits are relevant. This includes methods for the solution of linear systems (direct and iterative solvers), root-finding algorithms for nonlinear systems and implicit time integration methods. Mathematical concepts such as stability, convergence order or complexity are known and can be employed to judge the advantages and disadvantages of the various methods. Eventually, the students are able to programm their own circuit simulator, that can return both frequency as well as time domain solutions of electric networks.

Lecturer Prof. Dr.-Ing Herbert de Gersem and Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schöps
Type Graduate seminar
Semester Summer and Winter
Language English
Content: With the rapidly increasing power of computers, their importance for the calculation of electromagnetic fields also increases. Today, numerical algorithms for calculating fields are being researched at all universities. In order to keep pace with the development, international scientists from all fields of electromagnetic field calculation will be invited to report on their work.

Lecturer Mona Fuhrländer and Prof. Dr. Sebastian Schöps
Type Seminar
Semester Winter
Language German
Content ECES I takes into account the special situation of CE students due to the interdisciplinary nature of the program and the very special structure of CE programs. The learning objectives of ECES I are to work independently, to efficiently use specific courses at the university, to learn techniques for a more efficient use of personal time budgets as well as for structured task solving and goal-oriented work, to encourage work in learning groups and to successfully complete the CE study program with a successful entry into the study program.
