Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

It is well known that EMI arises from any operation that interrupts or changes an electrical current. During switching operations in substations, very fast, high field transients occur which can adversely affect, whether by radiated or conducted interference, the electronic equipment in equipment rooms unless it is adequately protected. The environment in which this equipment is installed therefore needs to be fully characterised in terms of electromagnetic interference levels. With this knowledge it is possible to provide adequate immunity for electronic equipment, and design efficient, effective and reliable protection, control and monitoring systems. The paper identifies two areas where the IEC 61000-4-10 Standard appears to be deficient. These are the required test frequencies of 10 kHz and 10 MHz, and testing at these frequencies are recommended at a repetition rate as determined by the formula given in the Standard.
