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.
