    Prevention of Sensor Disturbances caused by IEMI

    In this paper, we present a filter circuit that can be used to prevent sensor disturbances caused by intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI). Sensors are an increasingly important component in almost all electrical systems, and faulty sensor readings can cause major problems. We show that sensor disturbances can be caused by IEMI and that sensors with Inter-Integrated Circuit (I²C) interfaces are particularly susceptible to this type of interference. We present a filter circuit that can be connected directly to I²C sensors in order to prevent disturbances caused by IEMI. Through both simulation and experimental testing, the effectiveness of the filter in preventing errors in sensor readings without impacting the functionality of the I²C communication is demonstrated.

    Standardized radiation measurements can be simulated by various numerical or analytical approaches. In this article, a transfer function method is proposed for a fast and accurate antenna voltage prediction. Assuming that the interference source can be characterized as a linear Norton equivalent current source, its internal admittances and source currents are determined from measurements made with a vector network analyzer and an oscilloscope. The setup of the radiation measurement is described as a transfer function using its scattering parameters. A system of equations is set up with the multiport theory and solved for the antenna voltage, which is fed into a spectrum analyzer model. The result is compared to a measurement in a fully anechoic chamber. The method is extended to interference sources with stochastic signals, and, in the course of this, an approach for the estimation of the radiation measurement is developed. A dc motor is used as an application example.
