Electromagnetic compatibility is a fascinating and rapidly developing field of electrical engineering. It poses important, interesting and wide ranging multidisciplinary challenges to equipment designers. It affords many technical challenges which must be met by engineers, to make consistent and meaningful measurements of complex EMI quantities. The management and quality aspects of EMC work are equally important if the technical effort expended is to be realised in terms of added value to the products being developed.
