EMC CONSIDERATIONS IN CLASSIFICATION YARD DESIGN
The automated freight classification yard is composed of many electrical and electronic devices working in a complex interrelationship, with the goal of safe and efficient transportation of goods. Since many of these devices potentially emit and/or are susceptible to electromagnetic energy, thus degrading equipment reliability and overall safety, electromagnetic compatibility considerations are of great concern in the design of new yards or the upgrade of presently existing yards. Important railroad electromagnetic compatibility considerations are discussed in a tutorial manner. In addition, measurement techniques used to obtain source and susceptibility data, and techniques to successfully mitigate electromagnetic interference are presented.
