Understand the Importance of Managing EMC From Project Concept to Completion within the Rail Environment
Fundamentals of EMC in Railways (5 days)
This 5 day course* delivers an in-depth study of EMC in the complex railway environment. It provides an understanding of its importance and the need to manage EMC from project concept to completion.
The legal EMC requirements will be explained and how these are satisfied by use of standards and Technical Documentation; these requirements are related to safety and safety case requirements.
Topics covered which are necessary or help you to understand the railway electromagnetic environment include:
- The power feeding arrangements in AC and DC railways
- The EMI threats posed by traction drives
- How unwanted signals couple into lineside S&T cables
- How to shield/screen equipment and how to measure and reduce touch potentials
Other important aspects of railway EMC which included in the course are EMC Management, practical immunisation case studies and railway EMC measurements both at the trackside and within the laboratory.
The information is presented using lectures and both interactive and demonstrated practical work.
The New EMC Directive
The new EMC Directive 2014/30/EU is now in force with no transition period. The implications of the new Directive will be discussed in this course.
Note: This course is also available for industries which are not specifically involved in railway. For more information please click here.
