There has been a growing awareness that the threat of highaltitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) from a nuclear detonation could be devastating to the commercial power and telecommunication infrastructures of the United States, with special concern for the U.S. power grid.

It has also been established that a severe geomagnetic storm from a solar event could create significant damage to our power grid at a level that could take many years to repair. Finally, the threat of Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI) from electromagnetic weapons developed by criminals and terrorists raises a third specific electromagnetic threat.

This workshop is offered to build awareness on present-day HPEM threats and expertise with test and protection measures. Attendees will review the work of the IEC, the IEEE, the ITU-T and Cigré, whose focus has been on developing standards to test, evaluate, and protect equipment and systems against these threats. Workshop materials will cover recommended practices for protecting public accessible computers from IEMI and protection of telecommunications centers from HEMP and IEMI. In addition, the workshop will cover standards under development for the protection of high-voltage substation electronics from the threat of IEMI. Lastly, we will present the US Congressional EMP Commission’s findings on the HPEM threats.

As an added interest, there will be an opportunity to observe a 50,000V/m EMP test performed at Elite Electronic Engineering’s Downers Grove laboratory. Elite is minutes away from the Hyatt place and transportation will be provided.

  • Overview of the IEC HEMP Publications
    • The effects caused by HEMP
    • The radiated and conducted HEMP environment
