    The 15th of April is a special day for many people. It is the day that personal taxes are due for the previous calendar year for citizens of the USA. For some lucky individuals, it is their birthday and it is easy to remember for all their friends. It is also the anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic in the North Atlantic Ocean. This year, 2012, is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of t... View full abstract»

    During the construction phase of a wind power plant in Turkey, an electromagnetic interaction was observed with a large crane and an AM broadcast transmitter. The interaction resulted in large current levels which posed health hazards to the workers. Initial grounding measures were not sufficient. In order to quantify the current levels, to assess the degree of the hazard and to find a practical r... View full abstract»

    This paper presents two interlaboratory comparison schemes on electromagnetic field measurements. The first scheme involves measurements of the electric field produced by a scale transmission line and of the magnetic field produced by a medium voltage cable, whereas the second scheme involves measurements of the high frequency electromagnetic fields level and calculation of the total exposure rati...

    In the first two parts of the electromagnetic interference (EMI) filter design series, the conducted EMI generation mechanism and the method on the measurement of noise source impedances of a switched-mode power supply were described. In this final part, the selection of filter topology for optimal performance is explained. With good accuracy of both amplitude and phase of termination impedances, ... View full abstract»

    In the first article of this series, principles and methods of physics-based via modeling were discussed. It was shown how the electromagnetic behavior of vias can be captured by an equivalent circuit based modeling approach that describes all relevant full-wave effects. In this follow-up article, the authors present an approach to integrate striplines into the physics-based via model. The stripli... View full abstract»

    Electro/optical telecom equipment commonly use high speed digital backplanes in order to increase the data throughput among the connected boards. These backplanes have to be well designed and checked to avoid equipment failures. This paper describes the measurements commonly performed on a high speed backplane. View full abstract»

    There has been a desire for a long time to increase the efficiency of the way in which power is generated and delivered to customers. While there are many aspects to solve this desire, many of them entail the ability to know what power is used and when it is used and by whom. The point of common information is at the common power usage meter that resides on the outside wall of structures. From an ... View full abstract»

    With the onset of the smart grid, electric utilities and their customers are engaged in millions of dollars of research on smart grid technologies. There are hundreds of smart grid topics being studied by dozens of organizations including the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). One of the topics in the electric utility industry that has been (and still is) of significant importance to utilit... View full abstract»

  • “Survival of the fittest” — EMC in electric power substations

    When a short circuit occurs in a transmission substation (usual definition - voltages above 100,000 volts), the resulting fault current is spectacular. In some substations, it may be as high as 80,000 amperes. Let's assume the fault was caused by the flashover of a porcelain insulator supporting a section of the high voltage power line a few towers away from the substation, due to a buildup of sea...
