Methodology for Electromagnetic Susceptibility Analysis of Aerospace Ground Facilities 2001-01-2908
A three years analysis has been carried out inside the scope of the 4th framework programme driven by the European Commission.
The objectives of this analysis were consisting of the development of three complementary tools required for the electromagnetic susceptibility analysis of a ground facility.
- a new methodology approach based on critical coupling functions evaluation
- a test equipment allowing a quantitative determination of these coupling functions
- a numerical tool, based on the electromagnetic topology concept (ONERA CRIPTE code), which, by comparison with tests results, gives the evaluation of the full threat susceptibility of critical operational functions and conducts to the definition of pertinent electromagnetic protection to be applied on the ground facility.
The definition and the characteristics of the three tools are presented. Experiments conducted on specific ground facilities are described. Results obtained in tests and numerical calculations will be discussed.
