TUESDAY February 8, 2011
SCV Electromagnetic Compatibility Chapter
Speaker: Bill Imes, Senior Fellow, Lockheed Martin
Time: Networking/light dinner at 5:30 PM; Presentation at 6:30 PM

Grounding considerations result in interaction of power and signal applications in major aerospace systems.? This talk discusses the theoretical and practical basis for how to design aerospace ground systems (including test systems) that maximize probability of success.
Fundamental concepts of stray voltage generation, impedance, current flow path control vs frequency, stray magnetic field limitation, safety, electrostatic discharge prevention (via grounding), and primary and secondary power grounding approaches will be presented.? Handling of grounding and reference systems for both analog and digital applications in system will be addressed.? Power boundary and isolation techniques (and how to achieve them), and prevention, limitation of common mode concerns will be discussed.
