Title

Principles of Electromagnetic Pulse Protection

Description

Modern electronic equipment is especially sensitive to electromagnetic (EM) pulses. Sources of EM pulses can be natural or manmade. Lightning and solar flares are natural sources, while EMP from a nuclear blast and intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI) are manmade. The detrimental effects of these phenomena have been known for many years, and in the case of lightning and EMP, protection methods have been developed. This presentation will provide an overview of EMP sources, an introduction to the theory of EM protection, and tailored protection methods.
