The EMD'2015 Conference is a continuation of the series of symposia concer­ning Overvoltages in Power Electro­nics and Computer Systems, which were started in 1990. Since then these conferences took place in Białystok and Hołny Mejera (Poland), Vilnius, Kaunas, Dubingiai and Palanga (Lithuania).

XXIII International Conference on Electromagnetic Disturbances will be held in Bialystok on 9 - 11 September 2015, in the building of Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Bialystok University of Technology.

Protection against electromagnetic disturbances, which may cause malfunction, failure, or permanent degradation of electronic and electric devices or systems is critical, especially from cost-effective perspective. This fact as well as the evolution of electronic technology caused impetuous necessity for extension of the EMD conference scope with several new topics.

The aim of the EMD Conference is to create a forum for presentation and discussion concerning sources of electro­magnetic disturbances, their influence on electronic devices and systems, and protection against them.

Main Topics

  • Sources of electromagnetic disturbances
  • EMD emission and susceptibility
  • Measurements and simulation of disturbances
  • EMD in wire and radio communication
  • EMD in power systems, power quality
  • Disturbances in electronic equipment
  • EMD in control and measurement systems
  • High voltage equipment reliability at EMD
  • Lightning and overvoltage protection
  • EMD standards and testing
  • Grounding and equipotential bonding
  • Shielding techniques
  • System design for EMD protection
  • Problems of protection against EMD
  • EMD education
  • Intended EMD
  • Health effects of electromagnetic fields

Official Language

The conference language is English.
