A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.

Description*

IEC 61557-9:2014 specifies the requirements for the insulation fault location system (IFLS) which localizes insulation faults in any part of the system in unearthed IT a.c. systems and unearthed IT a.c. systems with galvanically connected d.c. circuits having nominal voltages up to 1 000 V a.c., as well as in unearthed IT d.c. systems with voltages up to 1 500 V d.c., independent of the measuring principle. IT systems are described in IEC 60364-4-41 amongst other literature. Additional data for a selection of devices in other standards should be noted”.
