Training Course: EMC in the Built Environment
Many companies within the built environment are unaware of their legal obligation to comply with the new Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive 2004/108/EC,* with regard to fixed installations. The regulation ensures that legacy and new electrical systems operate together safely, reliably and free from electromagnetic interference. The Directive requires electromagnetic compatibility to be maintained between all systems.
ERA’s one day training course will provide you with a thorough understanding of best EMC engineering practices, to ensure that installations are designed which are compliant with the most recent EMC Directive. The course will stress the benefits of complying with EMC legislation and will identify risks and provide effective strategies to mitigate risk. It will detail EMC engineering techniques and processes that will improve operational reliability and resilience of buildings and installations.
The programme includes:
- EMC Directive requirements
- The fundamentals of electromagnetic coupling
- EMC at the concept design stage – building design principles for EMC
- Site surveys and modelling
- System level design considerations
- Equipment selection and demonstration of on-going compliance
- EMC management
Who should attend:
Those responsible for the operation or design of fixed installations including:
- Site owners, site operators and site maintainers
- Installation maintainers
- M&E Designers
- Project Managers
- Associate Directors
- Design Managers
- Project Engineers
ERA Technology has a wealth of experience of EMC, gained over many decades providing technical consultancy to help clients fulfil EMC obligations. Recent projects have included managing the EMC requirements for the Kings Cross development. This was carried out through the provision of EMC Assurance Files, engineering practices, risk assessment and the cost effective mitigation processes. We were also the EMC consultants working for the owner/operator on the Terminal 5 project at Heathrow, setting the requirements for the various task teams to comply with, so that there would be no malfunctions due to an EMC event.
