This paper presents an adapted partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC)-based methodology applied to the modeling of interconnections of power electronics devices. Although this method is already well known, the originality of this work is its use to model a device presenting an industrial complexity. To make possible this modeling, two adapted integral methods, based on two different meshings, are presented. They are dedicated respectively to the computation of parasitic inductances and capacitances and lead to an equivalent circuit of the system. From a time-domain simulation of this circuit, current and voltage sources can be extracted and used to compute the radiated near magnetic field. This approach has been applied to model a real industrial static converter via system couplings, a variable speed drive. Good agreements have been obtained between simulated and measured results on conducted and emitted electromagnetic analysis.
