Principles of Electromagnetic Pulse Protection
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.
Mike McInerney is an electrical/electronics engineer with a research background in electromagnetics and electrical systems. During his more than 25 years of experience, he has conducted many research projects related to electromagnetic pulse (EMP) protection. He is a technical expert for EMP protection and has participated in U.S. government projects such as the development of EMP military standards. McInerney is a Registered Professional Engineer and an iNARTE Certified EMC Engineer.
