Laboratory Driven EMC Education – Design of a Power SupplyAbstractThis paper describes a practical approach to teaching electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in theundergraduate curriculum. The elective senior level EMC course discussed here combinesaspects of both theory and applied engineering. In this course, several laboratory assignmentsare devoted to the design of linear and switched-mode power supplies (SMPS), revealing thedesign tradeoffs vs. the EMC performance. Students are guided through a sequence of designsteps that allow them to experience the effects of the component and topology choices and theresulting EMC performance. Several EMC phenomena are discussed and explained throughthese practical design activities facilitating students’ understanding of this rather difficult topic.
