Space engineering - Electromagnetic compatibility

EMC policy and general system requirements are specified in ECSS-E-ST-20 (equivalent to EN 16603-20).
This ECSS-E-ST-20-07 (equivalent to EN 16603-20-07) Standard addresses detailed system requirements (Clause 4), general test conditions, verification requirements at system level, and test methods at subsystem and equipment level (Clause 5) as w ell as informative limits (Annex A).
Associated to this standard is ECSS-E-ST-20-06 (equivalent to EN 16603-20-06) "Spacecraft charging", w hich addresses charging control and risks arising from environmental and vehicle-induced spacecraft charging w hen ECSS-E-ST-20-07 addresses electromagnetic effects of electrostatic discharges.
Annexes A to C of ECSS-E-ST-20 document EMC activities related to ECSS-E-ST-20-07: the EMC Control Plan (Annex A) defines the approach, methods, procedures, resources, and organization, the Electromagnetic Effects Verification Plan (Annex B) defines and specifies the verification processes, analyses and tests, and the Electromagnetic Effects Verification Report (Annex C) document verification results. The EMEVP and the EMEVR are the vehicles for tailoring this standard.

Raumfahrttechnik - Elektromagnetische Kompatibilität

Ingénierie spatiale - Compatibilité électromagnétique

Les principes de CEM et les exigences générales applicables au système sont spécifiés dans l'ECSS-E-ST-20.
La présente norme ECSS-E-ST-20-07 spécifie les exigences détaillées applicables au système (Article 4), les conditions générales d'essai, les exigences de vérifications au niveau système et les méthodes d'essai aux niveaux sous-systèmes et équipements (Article 5), ainsi que les limites données à titre d'information (
L'ECSS-E-ST-20-06 « Charges électrostatiques des engins spatiaux » est associée à la présente norme. Elle traite du contrôle de la charge et des risques provenant des charges des engins spatiaux induites par l'environnement et le véhicule, tandis que l'ECSS-E-ST-20-07 traite des effets électromagnétiques des décharges électrostatiques.
Les Annexes A à C de l'ECSS-E-ST-20 documentent les activités CEM liées à l'ECSS-E-ST-20-07 : le plan de contrôle CEM (Annexe A) définit l'approche, les méthodes, les procédures, les ressources et l'organisation ; le plan de vérification des effets électromagnétiques (Annexe B) définit et spécifie les processus de vérification, les analyses et les essais ; enfin, le rapport de vérification des effets électromagnétiques (Annexe C) documente les résultats de vérification. L’EMEVP et l’EMEVR constituent les moyens de mise en place de la présente norme.
La présente norme peut être adaptée aux caractéristiques et contraintes spécifiques d’un projet spatial, conformément à l’ECSS-S-ST-00-02.
