In electromagnetic compatibility, scattering problems are defined in an infinite spatial domain, while numerical techniques such as finite element methods require a computational domain that is bounded. The perfectly matched layer (PML) is widely used to simulate the truncation of the computational domain. However, its performance depends critically on an absorption function. This function is generally tuned by using case-dependent optimization procedures. In this paper, we will present some efficient functions that overcome any tuning. They will be compared using a realistic scattering benchmark solved with the Discontinuous Galerkin method.
