This course module is effectively the “Maxwells Equations without maths”, It helps ordinary engineers to visualise EMC, so as to help understand the practical design techniques described in the remainder of the course modules.
2. Noon Session
Essential EMC Design of Switching Power Converters
Switching power converters of all sorts present extreme difficulties in containing generated interference. Typical switching frequencies of 30kHz−3MHz and their harmonics can be emitted by both differential and common mode conducted and radiated mechanisms. The introduction of wideband gap devices such as SiC and GaN devices brings new challenges.
3. Afternoon Session
Radiated emissions (RE) bench top characterization, troubleshooting and mitigation
Most product designers know how to use a near-field probe to assess harmonic content on their boards or system cabling. However, they often don’t know how to proceed next to resolve the actual issue. I developed a simple three-step process for evaluating a product and drilling down to the root cause.
We’ll also discuss the major causes of RE and how to mitigate them.
4. Q & A Session
Min Zhang & Kenneth Wyatt
During this session, engineers will have the opportunity to engage in a detailed discussion with our EMC experts Ken and Min. They will delve into the essential EMC troubleshooting tools and skills necessary for effective problem-solving. This interactive discussion will provide a platform for engineers to ask questions, share experiences, and gain valuable insights from these experienced EMC professionals.
