CSA’s Electrical Power Quality/EMC Workshop October 2009


September 9, 2009

The increased use of complex electrical and electronic equipment has created a need for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standards, says CSA. Industries, commercial interests and even public utilities can be significantly affected by problems in EMC. In industry, compliance can ensure proper functioning of sensitive equipment while limiting the level of disturbances and interference. For utilities, compliance will help ensure compatibility among different customers within the supply system, resulting in fewer distortions and enhanced power quality.

CSA’s “Electrical Power Quality/EMC Workshop” power quality tutorial,
scheduled for October 30 in Markham, Ont., introduces a practical
approach to maintaining EMC between equipment, as described in IEC and
CSA standards for disturbances below 9 kHz. Addressed issues include:
PQ environment, emission, equipment immunities, disturbance origins,
disturbance predictions and assessments. Solutions to disturbances are
also discussed.

The target audience is: a) utilities, industrial and manufacturing
engineers, and technicians responsible for the design of power systems,
and b) consulting engineers working on power system design products for
both utilities and equipment manufacturers.
