The oldest way to fight EMI has been to use filters, grounding and shielding as explained in [1, 4, 13]. For the case of power converters, filters could be installed in the input side and output side as deemed fit. This is a separate circuit that could be designed at a later stage after product manufacture and testing, and then connected to the equ...

Context 1
... phenomena and advances in technology have increased the quantity of electromagnetic energy pollution proliferation in the environment. This electromagnetic energy emanate from both intentional and non-intentional sources. The energy has certain effects on and interferes with the operations of most electrical and electronic equipment when it attains sufficient strength [1,2]. Broadly the effect is called electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise. The intentional sources of EMI include various apparatus such as radio and television broadcast stations, communication and radar and navigational aids. Unintentional sources include electrical appliances such as atmospheric discharges, automobile ignition systems, industrial control systems and household appliances. Figure 1 shows some of the common sources of EMI noises in the ambience. This electromagnetic environment involves three complex electromagnetic disturbance phenomena described as: low-frequency phenomena (conduction and radiation, except electrostatic discharge); high-frequency phenomena (conduction and radiation, except electrostatic discharge); and electrostatic discharge phenomena (conduction and radiation) ...
