EMC Testing of Electric Vehicles - Insights, Ideas and Solutions 

To ensure driver safety and vehicle performance, automotive manufacturers need to test for vulnerabilities from electrical disturbances during the development of new models. These tests are mandated by international standards bodies to ensure EVs are safe before they are permitted to be sold to consumers.

The articles here are designed to help development engineers and EMC lab engineers broaden their understanding of EMC and its effect on Electric Vehicles. The topics covered will explore the origins of electrical disturbances, how to test for immunity and emission, and the applicable compliance standards.  

AMETEK-CTS is a leader in the design and manufacture of laboratory test equipment for the automotive industry. Consequently, EV manufacturers are partnering with AMETEK-CTS to develop new laboratory equipment that can simulate a wide range of electrical disturbances to test for weaknesses in high voltage and low voltage components and systems.
