Complying with IEC/EN 61800-3 Good EMC Engineering Practices in the Installation of Power Drive Syst
This Guide is for what EN/IEC 61800-3  calls “Power Drive Systems”(PDSs), which are AC or DC motorspeed control units more usuallycalled variable speed drives (VSDs)or adjustable speed drives (ASDs).
VSDs for AC motors only are oftencalled variable frequency drives(VFDs), adjustable frequency drives(AFDs), or just inverter drives.

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!
