Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 1-5: General - High power electromagnetic (HPEM) effects on civil systems


Do you need a multi-user copy?




This part of IEC 61000 is a technical report that provides background material describing the motivation for developing IEC standards on the effects of high power electromagnetic (HPEM) fields, currents and voltages on civil systems. In the light of newly emerging transient antenna technology and the increasing use of digital electronics, the possibility of equipment being upset or damaged by these environments is of concern. This document begins with a general introduction to this subject and a listing of the pertinent definitions used. Following these clauses, the HPEM environments that are of concern are described and a discussion of the various effects that these environments can induce in civil systems is presented. Finally, techniques used to protect systems against these environments are summarised. More detailed information will be provided in separate documents in this 61000 series.
