EMC and Railway Security

Definition of EMC and Railway Safety

The railway environment is generally considered a ortam violent romanyetik electromagnetic environment. For an electric rail, the Megawatt power must be converted into the driving force of the trains to transport passengers or transport from one destination to another. Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) between electronic and electronic systems is a fundamental requirement for reliable and safe operation of the railway. It is clear that the interference from the traction equipment can affect the signal system with potentially terrible results. 

Railway EMC Directives and their meanings

The EMC Directive (2004/108 / EC) [1] and, for example, the UK regulations (SI 2006 no. 3418) [2] have an impact on all Railways. The railway is defined as makam fixed installation. In accordance with these regulations, and endiril good [EMC] engineering practices “used in equipment installation must be documented and unda responsible unda held by a responsible person and accessible to the implementing authorities. installation in progress. The definition of tir responsible person ”will affect contractors and infrastructure controllers; the transfer of responsibilities and documents will have to be clarified in the contracts.

The Directive also affects equipment manufacturers. All equipment bearing the CE marking requires the preparation of / technical documentation EEC as equivalent to the Technical Construction File in accordance with the previous EMC Directive 89/336 / EEC. The manufacturer may, at his option, choose to be assessed by a third party Notified Body.

Therefore, it is very important to manage EMC to meet technical, safety and legal requirements from the project concept by implementing an EMC Management Plan. The EMC test must then be performed to verify that EMC has been performed.

EMC Standards and Explanations for Rail

Series 50121 is divided into 6 sections covering different aspects of the railway environment. The structure and subdivision of the standards have not changed since the original publication. EN50121 contains the following sections:

  • EN50121-1 General
  • EN50121-2 Emission of the whole railway system to the outside world
  • EN50121-3-1 Rolling stock – Train and complete vehicle
  • EN50121-3-2 Rolling stock – Apparatus
  • EN50121-4 Emission and immunity of signal and telecommunication devices
  • EN50121-5 Emission and immunity of stationary power supply plants and apparatus
  • Each standard calls “basic” EMC standards for measurement methods.
