REGISTRATION & EXHIBITS

 

 

CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST

8:30

1

EMC Requirements for Electronic Systems

Government Regulations and Quality Assurance Requirements

 

2

Non-Ideal Behavior of Components

(Wires, PCB lands, resistors, capacitors, inductors, ferrites, electromechanical and digital devices, and component variability)

 

3

Signal Spectra

How are the frequency and time domains related and why do we care?

Radiated Emissions and Susceptibility

Simple models illustrating the variables which control these phenomena that are available to us as designers.

12:30

 

LUNCH

1:30

5

Conducted Emissions and Susceptibility

What causes these and what are the controlling variables that we as designers have at our disposal.

 

6

Crosstalk

Simple models in terms of inductive and capacitive coupling and why shielded wires and/or twisted pairs may OR MAY NOT reduce crosstalk.

 

7

Shielding

How can we get the most out of shielding?

 

8

System Design for EMC

How to put this all together to produce effective EMC design.

RECEPTION

NOTE: A mid-morning and mid-afternoon break of 30 minutes each will be scheduled at the speaker’s discretion. Table-top displays (exhibits) will be open during registration, lunch, all breaks, and the reception. Access to the table-top displays is available during the technical sessions, but the displays may not be manned during those times.

The Program, by Dr. Paul

This one-day tutorial will be directed primarily to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) engineers who are new to the EMC area. Many of us who work in EMC became involved in this exciting and challenging field by default – it was not a conscious career choice but was dictated by circumstances beyond our control. Hence our academic backgrounds were not tailored to EMC and we often find ourselves missing some important fundamentals. I want to try and fill these gaps as much as possible in this tutorial. We will not, nor do we need to, cover difficult mathematics or abstract concepts; most of the important concepts needed to conduct sound EMC design are a result of how you view the problem. Once you learn not to automatically think of ideal behavior that we have been taught in our undergraduate electrical engineering courses, it opens up new vistas of possibilities. Perhaps the best analogy here comes from the movie "Cool Hand Luke" starring Paul Newman. In a famous scene from the movie, the prison guard stood over Paul Newman and told him, "Luke, you’ve got to get your mind right." That is what I intend to try and do; guide us in "getting our minds right" regarding EMC.

Clayton R. Paul was born in Macon, GA on September 6, 1941. He received his BS degree from The Citadel, Charleston, SC, in 1963, the MS degree from Georgia Tech in 1964 and the Ph.D degree from Purdue University in 1970 – all in Electrical Engineering (EE). He is emeritus professor of EE at the University of Kentucky where he was a member of the faculty in EE for 27 years. He is currently the Sam Nunn Eminent Professor of Aerospace Systems Engineering in the department of electrical and computer engineering at Mercer University in Macon, GA. He is the author of 12 textbooks on EE subjects and has published over 200 technical papers, the majority of which are in his primary research area of EMC of electronic systems. Dr. Paul is a Fellow member of the IEEE and a member of Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu.
