Electromagnetic compatibility engineering courses
Three/two day course covers theoretical and practical aspects of noise and interference control in electronic systems. Interactive course will provide the participants with a working knowledge of electromagnetic compatibility principles of troubleshooting, filtering, shielding etc. The complexity of theory and mathematics will be kept to a minimum, and all ideas will be illustrated with examples of actual case histories.
This course is directed towards electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, quality managers, technical managers, systems engineers, regulatory compliance engineers, EMC laboratory technicians, assembly line technicians.
The participants will receive knowledge necessary to design electronic equipment which is compatible with the electromagnetic environment and is in compliance with national and international EMC regulations in European Union.
Courses cover the following topics
EMC legislation in EU. EU EMC market surveillance, EMC directive 2014/30/EC, standards EN, CISPR, GOST. Declaration of conformity (DoC). Certification.
Sources of electromagnetic noise. Classification of noise sources. Ambient noise floor in public, household and industrial environment. Environment classification.
Coupling of electromagnetic disturbances and methods of elimination
Galvanic coupling. Capacitive coupling. Mutual inductance coupling. Radiated fields.
Electric and magnetic field coupling, crosstalk. Cable types: coax, twisted pair and ribbon cables. Cable shielding.
Shielding principles. Materials used for shielding purposes. Electronic equipment shielding. Cable shielding. Seams, joints, gaskets, slot antennas, and multiple apertures.
(Interactive demonstrations in EMC laboratory giving ideas of proper shielding technology application)
Filtering principles. Filter components. Basic theory of common mode and differential mode filtering. Noise source and load impedance vs filter insertion loss. Single stage filters. Multi stage filters. Inductive chokes vs bypass capacitors in filtering. Proper installation of EMC filter and PCB layout for EMC filter.
(Practical classes in custom filter development. Emission measurements after custom filter installation in electronic devices)
EMC laboratory testing procedures
Basic knowledge of procedures carried out in EMC lab. How to prepare your equipment for testing?
Susceptibility– Electrostatic discharge (ESD), electric fast transients (EFT/Burst), overvoltage pulses (Surge), inducted RF conducted disturbances, radiated RF field, power frequency magnetic field, voltage dips and short interruptions.
(Interactive presentations in EMC lab, troubleshooting tips and tricks, development of equipment, alternative testing methods for usage at manufactures site)
