EMC-Electromagnetic compatibility

Switching frequencies increase in order to obtain high efficiency and compact power electronic. In digital electronic the clock frequencies continually increase making EMI worse.

Electronic development in Denmark (and the rest of Europe) is often based on modules developed in the far east. The Danish companies integrate the different modules into one product. EMC is one of the big issues in this process.

Everything is going wireless, including IOT, and desense (degradation of sensitivity caused by nearby electronic) becomes more important.

International standards for EMC continually change and companies must adapt to new mandatory requirements.

Research scope

The video below demonstrates Centre for Industrial Electronics in-house near-field scanner:

We have a strong interest in all kind of EMC. We are strong in conducted emission (<30 MHz) and EMI filtering including using hybrid magnetic. Another focus area is predicting EMC performance early in a project based on the used modules and EMC architecture. We are among the pioneers in using near-field scanning for hot spot finding and using the measured field as source for simulations and EMC architecture.

Accordingly, our research goals are to

  • Making EMI filters smaller and more cost effective.
  • Making and analysing EMC architecture in order to predict EMC performance early in the project.
  • Understanding EMI with respect to wireless solutions.

Thereby the impact of our research is

  • Increased feasibility in project execution where EMC will not be showstopper.
  • Targeted EMI mitigation with fewer components (lower cost).
