During the 1980s the worldwide interest in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) grew rapidly with the introduction of legislation to control the growing interference problems generated by the increased use of electronic equipment in industry and in the home. The European directive harmonising EMC measurements gave particular impetus to manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronic equipment in Europe to understand EMC design techniques and verification procedures. This book explains how equipment can be verified by testing. It discusses the nature of EMC standards world wide and describes in detail testing methods and their conduct and accuracy. In addition to standard EMC testing, topics including electrostatic discharge, nuclear electromagnetic pulse and lightning are also discussed. In the broad span of its subject matter, the interests of equipment manufacturers, EMC test engineers, project managers and company administrators are addressed. The testing of both military and commercial electronic equipment is covered. Particular emphasis is placed on the nature of EMC test equipment and how to use it to make reliable measurements.
