EMC phenomenon

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the ability of electrical equipment and systems to function acceptably in their electromagnetic environment, by limiting the unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy which may cause unwanted effects such as electromagnetic interference (EMI) or even physical damage in operational equipment.

EMC is determined by measuring electromagnetic disturbance emissions and the by assessing immunity to electromagnetic disturbances.

The electromagnetic emission is the generation of electromagnetic energy, whether deliberate or accidental, by some source and its release into the environment.

Immunity to the electromagnetic disturbance is the ability of equipment to function correctly in the presence of electromagnetic disturbances.
