Propagation d'incertitudes en CEM. Application à l'analyse de fiabilité et de sensibilité de lignes de transmission et d'antennes

Abstract : Nowadays, most EMC analyzes of electronic or electrical devices are based on deterministic approaches for which the internal and external models’ parameters are supposed to be known and the uncertainties on models’ parameters are taken into account on the outputs by defining very large security margins. But, the disadvantage of such approaches is their conservative character and their limitation when dealing with the parameters’ uncertainties using appropriate stochastic modeling (via random variables, processes or fields) is required in agreement with the goal of the study. In the recent years, this probabilistic approach has been the subject of several researches in the EMC community. The work presented here is a contribution to these researches and has a dual purpose : (1) develop a probabilistic methodology and implement the associated numerical tools for the reliability and sensitivity analyzes of the electronic devices and systems, assuming stochastic modeling via random variables; (2) extend this study to stochastic modeling using random processes and random fields through a prospective analysis based on the resolution of the telegrapher equations (partial derivative equations) with random coefficients. The first mentioned probabilistic approach consists in computing the failure probability of an electronic device or system according to a given criteria and in determining the relative importance of each considered random parameter. The methods chosen for this purpose are adaptations to the EMC framework of methods developed in the structural mechanics community for uncertainty propagation studies. The failure probabilities computation is performed using two type of methods: the ones based on an approximation of the limit state function associated to the failure criteria, and the Monte Carlo methods based on the simulation of the model’s random variables and the statistical estimation of the target failure probabilities. In the case of the sensitivity analysis, a local approach and a global approach are retained. All these methods are firstly applied to academic EMC problems in order to illustrate their interest in the EMC field. Next, they are applied to transmission lines problems and antennas problems closer to reality. In the prospective analysis, more advanced resolution methods are proposed. They are based on spectral approaches requiring the polynomial chaos expansions and the Karhunen-Loève expansions of random processes and random fields considered in the models. Although the first numerical tests of these methods have been hopeful, they are not presented here because of lack of time for a complete analysis.
