Electromagnetic Compatibility: Methods, Analysis, Circuits, and Measurement. Third edition David Weston CRC press, 2017.


“A comprehensive tome, containing a wealth of practical information and worked examples”. John F. Dawson, University of York, United Kingdom.

I have reviewed many books on EMC, this one by David A. Weston, is the most complete coverage yet. The 1157 page book covers not only basic and advanced theory of EMC, but product design, commercial and military measurement techniques, and EMI mitigation . The 12 chapters and six appendices are well illustrated with numerous charts, graphs, and figures . It also contains ample case studies with solved examples helping to illustrate the concepts. In summary I would rank this text right up there with Clayton Paul’s Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility (Wiley 2006)  or Henry Ott’s Electromagnetic compatibility Engineering  (Wiley 2009).  Kenneth Wyatt,  Interference Technology Magazine May 10th 2017.

Revised, updated and expanded the book provides comprehensive practical coverage of the design, problem solving, and testing of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in electrical and electronic equipment and systems. This new edition novel information on theory, applications, evaluations, electromagnetic computational programs, and predictions techniques available. The myths, misapplications, misconceptions, and fallacies that are common when discussing EMC/EMI are also addressed and corrected (see also EMC myths on this web site) . Available from Amazon.ca etc.

Many of the following papers are available from the Researchgate web site, IEEE Explore or from the Interference technology magazine.
