Essentials of Railway EMC (1 Day)

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) is an important part of any Rail Project, be it recommissioning or refurbishing Rolling Stock, managing the updates or new builds of Depots and Stabling facilities, or adding apparatus to existing systems.

Consideration for EMC (and subsequent management if required) is something that needs to be carried through all of the stages of a project.

This course provides an introduction to the essential aspects of EMC in rail projects, and is applicable to:

  • Infrastructure projects such as electrification, signalling, lineside cabling renewal, or power upgrades
  • Apparatus intended for use in the external rail environment or on board rolling stock
  • Rolling stock renewals and/or significant upgrades to rolling stock itself.

This course is an excellent platform on which to build further training.
