Project: Improved EMC test methods in industrial environments

Electronic products must comply with Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standards to ensure that they do not cause, and are not adversely affected by, electromagnetic interference. However, this requires measurement and validation when a product is being developed, which can be costly and time consuming for the manufacturer. The required measurements can be adapted to reduce the time and cost involved, but not enough is known about the performance, characterisation, validation and traceability of the adapted techniques. Furthermore, there are few existing standards that detail the EMC testing of large equipment and even in these there are gaps in information. This project will fill these gaps in the EMC testing of large equipment and help companies evaluate their products while they design them, in order to identify and solve any problems early on in the development process. The project will also investigate the adaption of standard methods and correlate the performance and uncertainty of new methods against the standard tests.
