Course is 60 slides over 30 pages
Suppressing emissions of mains harmonics
- The mains harmonic currents emitted by rectifier-capacitor AC-DC power converters
- Smaller values of storage capacitor and the “Valley Fill” method
- DC chokes
- Charge-pump switch-mode techniques
- ‘Active’ PFC circuits
- 6-phase rectification
- Active front end (AFE) rectification
Suppressing emissions of voltage fluctuations and flicker
- Load current fluctuations cause the problems
- Reducing the inrush current
- Suppressing AC loads
- Suppressing DC loads
- Using Active PFC as an active filter
- Some useful references

Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
