Electrical and electronic equipment are designed and built to operate satisfactorily under specified power quality and electromagnetic environment. They may malfunction or degrade in performance when operating beyond the stipulated power quality and EM environment. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) describes the ability of electronic and electrical systems or components to function correctly together. A system or equipment is electromagnetic compatible if it satisfies three criteria:
It does not cause interference to other systems;
It is not susceptible to emissions from other systems;
It does not cause interference to itself.
In the case of mission-critical control and signaling equipment, functional safety depends on the system or equipment operating correctly in response to its inputs. If the input signals are corrupted by electromagnetic interference (EMI), disastrous consequences may occur. EMC standards are used to ensure adequate availability of equipment and system functionality, with different standards developed to suit the wide variety of EM environments.
This 1-day seminar will examine the fundamentals of EMC and the impacts of EMI on functional safety. Installation and mitigation guidelines to achieve EMC will be illustrated with particular reference to IEC610000-5 series of standards. The key topics include:
· Fundamentals of EMC
· Functional safety
· Cabling guidelines
· Earthing and bonding design
· HEMP and lightning protection concepts
· Protection against conducted disturbances
· Protection against radiated disturbances
