Introduction to electromagnetic compatibility, basic definitions and concepts, electromagnetic interference, susceptibility and immunity, categorization of interference mechanisms, electromagnetic compatibility between systems. Standards, Public bodies, Instructions, CE certification. Interference in transmission lines and signal integrity, effect of discontinuities, per unit length parameters. Non-linear component behavior, radiation emission / susceptibility, antenna types for electromagnetic compatibility measurements. Conductive emissions / susceptibility, impedance filters and stabilizers, interference coupling mechanisms, effect of higher order harmonics. Cross-talking, inductive-capacitive coupling approximation model and protection types. Shielding systems, shielded cables, shielding performance, grounded systems, grounding types, circuit layout and protection devices. Electromagnetic compatibility measurement installations, open area test sites, anechoic chambers, reverberation chambers and TEM cells. Electromagnetic compatibility and effects on humans. Contribution of numerical techniques for electromagnetic compatibility problems.

Learning Outcomes:

1) Familiarity with the basic concepts and definitions of electromagnetic compatibility, linking to fundamental knowledge of electromagnetism.

2) Understand the mechanisms of development and suppression of interference, the non-linear operation of the main circuit components, and the mechanisms of cross talk.

3) In-depth understanding of shielding systems and grounding through realistic examples.

4) Understand the methodologies for measuring basic quantities and indicators of electromagnetic compatibility.

5) Learning measurement techniques and familiarity with the operation of the sound chamber.

6) Defining the concepts of electromagnetic compatibility through a series of selected works including the theoretical analysis of the electromagnetic phenomena involved, the design and construction of a prototype, the simulation and parametric analysis of its main features, and the evaluation of its functionality through series and comparisons.
