2nd Edition

Electromagnetic Compatibility Principles and Applications, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded

By David Weston Copyright 2001

    This totally revised and expanded reference/text provides comprehensive, single-source coverage of the design, problem solving, and specifications of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) into electrical equipment/systems-including new information on basic theories, applications, evaluations, prediction techniques, and practical diagnostic options for preventing EMI through cost-effective solutions.

    Offers the most recent guidelines, safety limits, and standards for human exposure to electromagnetic fields!

    Containing updated data on EMI diagnostic verification measurements, as well as over 900 drawings, photographs, tables, and equations-500 more than the previous edition-Electromagnetic Compatibility: Principles and Applications, Second Edition:

    Introduction to EMI and the electromagnetic environment; introduction to E and H, near and far fields, radiators, receptors, and antennas; typical sources and characteristics of radiated and conducted emissions; crosstalk and electromagnetic coupling between PCB tracks, wires and cables; components, emission reduction techniques, and noise immunity; electromagnetic shielding; cable shielding, coupling from E and H fields, and cable emissions; grounding and bonding; EMI measurements, control requirements, and test methods; systems EMC and antenna coupling; printed circuit boards; EMI and EMC control, case studies, EMC prediction techniques, and computational electromagnetic modeling. Appendices: characteristic impedance of conductors, wires and cables; units and conversion factors; electric field strength to magnetic field to power density conversions; commonly-used related formulae; data on bare solid copper wire (dimensions, weight and resistance).
