ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE, A NEGLECTED PROBLEM IN SHIPBOARD INTEGRATED SYSTEMS

Shipboard integrated systems contain many items and components which can cause malfunction of the total system when exposed to electromagnetic environment. For some reasons or other, electromagnetic interference (EMI) control methods and techniques have to some extent been regarded as black magic among many people dealing with ship automation. This paper deals in particular with EMI control techniques and methods. It surveys the most important parameters of EMI suppression. The importance of wiring separation is considered and proposals for wiring classification and separation of cable runs are given. Good practice for shielding of cables and equipment together with proper grounding of the same is outlined in some detail. Stress is also laid upon procedures for survey and tests of the complete installation. The paper concludes with a recommendation of a minimum EMI-program to be followed during planning and installation of shipboard integrated systems.
