Technical Presentation

RF radiated emissions from Electric Vehicles – Regulatory challenges.

By Keith Frazier, Senior Technical Leader of Electromagnetic Compatibility, Ford Motor Company

Abstract: Unlike internal combustion engines, electric powertrain in automotive applications pose much greater challenges in meeting regulatory requirements with respect to far field radiated RF emissions.  This talk will review the basic physical mechanisms of the EV powertrain that contribute toward RF emissions from the vehicle.  Various mitigation techniques are summarized along with the engineering tradeoffs they create.  Current and future regulatory requirements are also reviewed.
