The education of Theoretical Electrical Engineering is based on the three columns: fields, circuits, systems. These are taught more or less independently of each other. Thus, many interrelations between them are not explicitly addressed and remain unused for the learning and cognition process of the students. In the present paper is exemplary demonstrated how electromagnetic field problems of passive interconnection structures can be modeled by partial element equivalent circuits and calculated by circuit solvers. This is advantageous because the circuit interpretation is in particular familiar for electrical engineers and establishes a better understanding of electromagnetic processes.
