Electromagnetic Compatibility in Power Systems
Book PrefaceElectromagnetic Compatibility in Power Systems
The number of natural or artificially produced physical phenomena exploited for practical applications is relatively high, even though several of them give rise to unpleasant consequences. These ultimately manifest themselves in the form of malfunction or definitive failure of components and systems, or environmental hazard. So far, manifold categories of inadvertent or deliberate sources have been discovered to simultaneously produce useful effects in some but adverse ones in others. In fact, it is quite likely to occur that a useful agent assumes the character of a threat or pollutant for surrounding victims, since its influence on them easily exceeds pre-established thresholds of tolerability.
Incidentally, the progressive miniaturisation and sensitivity of electronic components and circuits, often operating in close proximity to relatively powerful sources of electromagnetic interference have been responsible for the growing interest in the last decades for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). EMC is founded on a body of knowledge elaborated and systematised with the object of estimating and mitigating electromagnetic interference. Stricto sensu, no theory is distinctive of EMC, which rather appearing as a guide to profitably apply a number of principles, theories, models and methods enunciated and elaborated in different, often contiguous, realms of applied science. Since its appearance as an organic assembly of wide-ranging notions and procedures, nowadays largely included in higher education teaching, EMC fully deserves to be qualified as a doctrine or discipline.
On the other hand, potential authors of books on the subject matter are fully aware of the serious difficulties which could “loom ahead”. In fact, planning the production of manageable handbooks capable of treating all the EMC case studies of practical and long-lasting interest could result in a questionable and difficult undertaking. Therefore, in addition to textbooks providing a thorough background on basic aspects, thus being well-tailored for students and those who want to pursue this discipline, the most that can be made to jointly sustain a helpful and practicable publishing activity is to supply specialised monographs or miscellanies of selected topics. Such resources are preferentially addressed to post-graduate students, researchers and designers, often employed in the forefront of research or engaged in remodelling design paradigms. Hence, the prerequisite for such a class of publications should consist in arousing critical sense and promoting new ideas.
Even this book will try, to the best of the contributors’ ability, to rather discuss unusual subjects, or throwing out suggestions for reformulating conventional approaches, than to appear as a reference text. A common motivation encouraged the authors involved to bring together a number of accounts of their research that they have undertaken over the recent years: willing to fill the important need of covering EMC topics pertaining to power systems. The above-mentioned accounts form as many chapters, the arguments of which are summarised here.
