286 : Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) in Diffused Communications Systems
Research Project Census
We are undertaking
a census of research activity within the area of COST 286. The Action
divides its activities into two areas described by the working groups below.
one of the pro-formas for each research project for which you are responsible
and email it by attachment to the appropriate Working Group Chairman.
Working Group 1 Simulation and Design
environment in which the diffused communications system operates is complex
and dynamic. The EMC performance of the system is determined by the environment
which requires characterisation from this viewpoint. On the other side,
the communication networks can radiate fields in the environment. These
fields must be known in order to estimate the possible disturbance level
on other services and to check if they respect the limits adopted for health
The coupling of the interference source/victim ensemble will be evaluated
by numerical methods and measurements. The following aspects are of immediate
i) The susceptibility profiles of different modulation
and coding schemes.
ii) The susceptibility of digital systems to non-conventional
radio threats such as ultra-wideband radio.
iii) The description of emission and susceptibility aspects with
reference to high density system integration and compatibility.

Working Group 2 Derivation of suitable measurement
and design techniques.
Prof H Garbe
Once the characteristics
of the problem are known from the above, suitable measurement techniques
can be evolved. The system design aspects will follow. There is also a specific
need for near-field measurement techniques suited for PLC. Of increasing
importance in the more complex electromagnetic environments found in distributed
communications systems are statistical techniques for measurement and evaluation
of EMC problems.
