Electrotechnical systems and installations are primarily designed for functionality. Appropriate standards and guidelines are applied to accomplish this; however, experience shows this approach to be insufficient for establishing electromagnetic compatibility. This leads to huge expenses for adjustments, corrections, and retrofits. This book provides the reader with the means and manners to achieve electromagnetic compatibility. It shows the technical pitfalls of both new and existing systems and installations. The first four parts of the text are technical in nature, including: power distribution networks, differential signaling and balancing, non-linear effects in metal conduits, and active and passive shielding. The final part focuses on the management and process aspects of EMC, including: technical construction, measurement equipment, and guidance on building current probe and near-field probes.

Author Biography Mark van Helvoort, PMP, PBA Dr.Ir. Mark van Helvoort, PMP, PBA, is as program manager at Philips responsible for public-private partnerships related to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). MRI Scanners are complex systems with an inherently challenging electromagnetic environment. As project manager he is currently involved in investigating the coexistence of active medical implantable devices and MRI. Before this function he was as hardware architect responsible for system EMC design and as group leader he has been responsible for RF electronics. Before joining Philips in 1999 he was with AMP (currently TE Connectivity) where he was responsible for very high speed connector simulations, investigations related to automotive wire harnessing and EMC aspects of premises networks. He was responsible for the installation of EMC test lab for automotive components. He received his Ph.D. from Eindhoven University in 1995. His thesis described grounding structures for the EMC protection of cabling and wiring. Parts of his thesis were adapted for publication in a Dutch journal for installers ("Installatie Journaal"). In 2011 Dr.Ir. van Helvoort and Melenhorst B.Sc. authored a Dutch book on EMC "EMC van Installaties - Op weg naar eletromagnetische compatibiliteit". In total Dr.Ir. van Helvoort, at the time of writing, holds 77 publications and 27 patents. He is a senior member of IEEE. Mathieu Melenhorst B.Sc. Mathieu Melenhorst, B.Sc., is a seasoned building service consultant specialized in electromagnetic phenomena at Sweco, the Netherlands with a track record in electromagnetic compatibility of large installations and complex systems. In his current role he is responsible in a wide variety of projects for preventing electromagnetic interaction between equipment and between equipment and humans (EMC and EMF), electrostatic discharge (ESD), lightning protection, stray current management (corrosion prevention) and power quality. Before joining Sweco, Mathieu Melenhorst worked at Alewijnse on marine systems, at Croon Elektrotechniek on infrastructural projects as specialist in EMC and Lightning. At Thales Nederland he was involved as EMC engineer in radar and optical systems for naval vessels and at FEI/Philips Electron Optics (currently Thermo Fisher Scientific) as EMC designer for electron microscopy systems. Mathieu has written a good number of technical papers, including a book on EMC in Dutch, together with Mark van Helvoort. He is member of the Dutch ESD-EMC society and a gifted speaker at seminars.
