VIRTUAL VEHICLE is a leading international R&D center for the automotive and rail industries. The center focuses on advanced virtualization of vehicle development. This linking of numerical simulations and hardware testing leads to a powerful HW-SW sys-tem design. About 300 people are now employed at our site in Graz - their expertise enables the efficient development of affordable, safe and environmentally friendly vehicles.

A key characteristic of today's switched mode power converters is their conducted electromagnetic emission (EME). To apply mitigation techniques with minimal weight, volume and costs, a converter's EME shall be identi-fied by simulations and emission measurements as early as possible within a converter design process.
In this thesis, EME of a wide band gap propulsion inverter shall be modelled in the context of an electric power train. The thesis will be done in several stages with increasing complexity and embedded in a research project with a dynamic team and supported by an industry partner providing information and possibly validation of the models on their test beds.
