About this event

The EMC in Railways 2019 event will build on the success of the 2018 EMC in Railways event. It will provide insights and knowledge into the latest developments of Electromagnetic Compatibility design from a systems engineering perspective, whilst providing key information on relevant case studies and examples.

The technical talks will centre on:

  • EMC Rolling Stock compatibility
  • EMC /EMF on AC and DC operational railways
  • EMC Railway measurements
  • EMC Railway modelling

 

Speakers

  • Helen Yu, Principal Engineer [M&E], Network Rail
  • John Evans, Principal Traction Engineer, Alstom Rolling Stock & Services
  • Ken Webb, Technical Director, Mott Mc Donald
  • Maya Petkova, Interoperability Manager, Crossrail
  • Adam Bullivant, Principal Consultant, Ricardo
  • Marek Patoka, Senior Consultant, ENOTRAC

Additional information

Comments from last year’s event:

As Distribution Engineer it enabled me to incorporate EMC issues when undertaking design. To understand constraints on designs when in proximity to staff or public. A wider appreciation of EMC was gained and how I can work with colleagues on design work.

Gave me a refresh and update on the subject of EMC as it becomes more known about and the importance of EMC being recognised as something to take account out as part of undertaking works on the railway with its associated systems. It covered many areas of EMC from standards, health risks, testing constraints and 5G.

I had previously attended a general EMC seminar around 20 years ago, so it was good to attend this seminar with a specific railway focus.
As I have been very active, over a period of time, with the specific aspects of interference in lineside signalling and telecoms from traction systems, the seminar gave me an opportunity to "compare notes" with others who are specialists in this field.
However, of even greater value, because I do already have a good knowledge in that particular aspect, were the sessions covering other aspects of railway EMC - legislation, physiological effects on people, and interference with other systems, including train systems, plus the impacts at high frequency, extending to the radio spectrum. It was also useful to gain a deeper understanding of EMC modelling processes, especially as I have been reliant on modelling outputs in developing, specifying and managing immunisation measures.
