What is EMC?

Ametek CTS Technical Paper - Insulation tests

Published: 14th January 2022

When designing electrical equipment, machines and systems, it is necessary to check the products from an EMC and safety point of view. These test are mandated by international standards and are designed to protect the user from potential harm and to ensure the performance of equipment is maintained in the event of electrical disturbances.

In addition to the classic EMC tests such as ESD (electrostatic discharge), Burst (fast transient) and Surge, there is also the area of insulation tests. Overvoltages are used to test an electrical products insulation without large currents flowing that occur during breakdowns and flashovers. This document discusses the various standards that address this issue and the implications for testing.

What is Ripple and Where it Occurs

Ripple is a disturbance signal that is superimposed on a supply line. Typically, it originates from switching of power electronics i.e. MOSFETs or IGBTs. On an electric vehicle the biggest source for ripple is the electric propulsion system, namely the inverter part.

Ametek CTS Technical paper - Ripple disturbances

A ripple is a disturbance signal that is superimposed on the DC power supply. This ripple comes, for example, from periodic switching operations of semiconductor components. In electric vehicles the electric drive system, especially the inverter part, represents the greatest potential source of ripple-voltages.
