Day 1 – EM Phenomena
The three parts to every electromagnetic interference (EMI) event and four types of EM coupling, EM phenomena in; long cables, conductors, electrical power supplies, EM phenomena caused by electrical power use, EM fields from intentional and unintentional radiators, electric and magnetic fields from electrostatic discharges, EM weapons (intentional EMI), Comparing immunity test standards with real life EMI, intermodulation and demodulation, interference with; analogue devices/circuits, digital devices/circuits, software, electro-mechanical devices.
CE + CE does not = CE!
Meaning of CE Marking, integrating CE Marked equipment together, why this does not result in a CE compliant system neither technically nor legally, what to do instead.
Good EMC practices, introduction
EMC Directive (2014/30/EU) fixed installation requirements, lightning protection for electronics (BS EN 62305), IET Wiring Regulations (BS7671), overview of the overall EMC control procedure.
Good EMC practices in general use
Buying electronic equipment, power distribution systems and power quality for EMC, galvanic isolation for EMC, reducing the accidental RF-antenna efficiency of cables, segregation (zoning) of sites, equipment, and cables, using a bonding ring conductor (BRC), cable routing, and correct shield termination at both ends, galvanic isolators and PECs, creating an RF reference, RF-bonding techniques for metalwork and cable shields.
Day 2 – EM Mitigation Techniques
EM zoning, safety earthing/grounding for safety and EMC, mesh-bonding of common bonding networks (MESH-CBNs), and of insulated bonding networks (MESH-IBNs), damping the common mode loop, what to do if you can’t use mesh-bonding, filtering power and signals for cabinets and EM zones, shielding for cabinets and EM zones, surge and lightning protection.
Electro-galvanic corrosion, electrochemical metal groups.
Maintaining Good EMC Performance over the Operational Lifecycle
Through life EMC maintenance for screening, cables, filters, relevance of upgrades and enhancements.
