Electromagnetic Interference and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMI/EMC

  2. 2. WHAT IS EMI/EMC  An Electromagnetic disturbance which may degrade the performance of an equipment or device or cause malfunction of the equipment is called electromagnetic interference.  Electromagnetic Compatibility is a near perfect state in which a receptor (device or system) functions are satisfactorily in common electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbance to any other device/ equipment/system in that environment.
  3. 3. IMPORTANCE OF EMC  EMC is becoming more important because there are so many opportunities today for EMC issues.  Increased use of electronic devices.  Automotive Application.  Personal computing/Entertainment/Communication.  Increased potential for Susceptibility/Emission.  Lower Supply Voltage.  Increasing Clock Frequencies.  Increasing Packaging Density.  Demand for smaller, lighter, cheaper, lower price shop.
  4. 4. BASIC ELEMENTS OF EMI SITUATIONS  Interference occurs if the received energy causes the receptor to function in unwanted manner.  Whether the receiver is functioning in wanted or unwanted manner, depends upon the coupling path as well as the source and victim.  The coupling path is to be made as inefficient as possible.
  5. 5. CAUSES OF EMI/EMC  SOURCES  Refrigerators, washing machine, electric motors.  Arc welding machine.  Electric shavers, AC, Computers.  Fast switching digital devices, ICs etc  Power chords of computers, UPS etc.  Aircraft navigation and Military equipments.  VICTIMS  Communication Receivers.  Microprocessors, Computers.  Industrial Controls.  Medical Devices.  Household Appliances.  Living Beings.
  6. 6. EFFECTS OF EMI  Momentary disturbances in T.V and Radio reception due to operation mixer-grinder, Electric shavers, Passing vehicles.  Reset of computers and loss of data.  Burn of sensitive cells an components.  Change of setting of status of control equipments.  Failure of Pace-maker implanted in a patient due to a “walkie-talkie”.  False initiation electro explosive detonators.  Malfunctioning of flight controlling system due to use of laptop by passengers.  Biological hazards.
  7. 7. PURPOSE AND METHODOLOGY FOR EMC SYSTEM  A SYSTEM IS SAID TO BE ELECTROMAGNETICALLY COMPATIBLE:  It doesn’t cause interference with other systems.  It is not susceptible to emissions from other system.  It doesn’t cause interference with itself.  THE METHODOLOGIES TO PREVENT EMI ARE:  Suppress the emission at the source point, best method to control EMI.  Make the coupling path as inefficient as possible.  Make the receiver less susceptible to emission.
  8. 8. STANDARDS SETTING INSTITUTIONS DOD- Department of Defence (USA)-Immunity and Emission MIL Standard.  IEC- International Electrotechnical Commission (EU)- Immunity Standard.  CISPR- International Special Committee On Radio Interference operating under IEC-Emission Standard.  FCC- Federal Communication Commission(EU)- Emission Standard.  BSI- British Standard Institution(UK)-Emission Standard.  VDE- Verband Deutscher Electrotechniker(Germany)-Emission Standard.
