Grounding, and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Refresher
May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
ONLINE Virtual Meeting
May 29th, 2020 12:00 PM-01:00 PM
TOPIC: “Grounding, and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Refresher” Slides
SPEAKER: Mike Zerkus, P.E.
PRESENTATION: A short refresher course in solving EMI and Grounding problems.
Over half of all problems in electrical, electronic and control systems are caused by a misunderstanding or a lack of understanding of Grounding, Shielding and EMI. This short refresher course will present basic concepts and mitigation strategies that will bring EMI mitigation from a black art to a rational science. Common misunderstandings and mitigation techniques will be discussed as well as the value of a “Grounding Plan” that allows project wide coordination between electrical, electronic and non-electrical groups.
