Grounding is often viewed from separate points of view - safety, ESD, or EMI. This article combines all these aspects together so that practitioners can address grounding at the factories and in the laboratories in a comprehensive way.
This article presents the importance of defining product case and load simulator grounding in an automotive EMC test plan.
High-current grounding impedance tests have been specified in safety standards for many years. There are two, independent sources for these tests.
When we think of grounding systems, we tend to think only of resistance and how resistance can be reduced. But the things we do to lower resistance may increase inductance, which could actually make matters worse, especially for fast-rising secondary surges.
