Faculty Profile

Valter Mariani Primiani
Associate Professor


Expertise: Electromagnetic Compatibility and Electromagnetic Field Effects

Prof. Valter Mariani Primiani is working, since a long time, on Many research topics within the general EMC area.  The modeling and the experimental activity is strong in the critical analysis of emission and immunity tests. The research activity also focuses on modeling of alternative test sites such as the reverberation chambers for emission, immunity and shielding effectiveness tests. He was recently involved in the definition of the International Standard IEEE 299 for the shielding effectiveness measurement in reverberation chambers. In particular, a modeling and an experimental activity are carried out in characterizing the shielding properties of  Carbon Foam materials, composite nano-structured materials and composite concrete materials. More recently, he began an activity in the field of aerospace EMC. The compatibility of  electronic portable devices (PEDs) with the on board aircraft equipments was investigated to assess their operability during flight. The analysis is now under extension to spacecraft modules. He has cooperated with the National Physical Laboratory (London, UK) and with the National Institute of Standard and Technology (USA) on the specific topic of reverberation chambers.

Capsule Bio

Prof. Valter Mariani Primiani was born in Rome, Italy, in 1961. He received the degree “Dottore Ingegnere” in electronic engineering from the University of Ancona (now Universita` Politecnica delle Marche) Ancona, Italy, in 1990. He is currently Associate Professor of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) with the Universita` Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy. He is a member of the Department of Information Engineering, where he is responsible for the EMC Laboratory. His research interests include the prediction of digital printed circuit board radiation, the radiation from apertures, the electrostatic discharge coupling effect modeling, and the analysis of emission and immunity test methods. More recently, he has extended his research activity in the field of the application of reverberation chambers for compliance testing and for metrology applications. Prof. Mariani Primiani is a member of the IEEE EMC Society and the Italian Electromagnetics Society. He is co-author of more than 150 technical papers.
