Electromagnetic Compatibility and Smart Grid Interoperability Issues

This report introduces electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) as an integral process needed for the design of devices that are used in the operation of the Smart Grid, and is an output of the SGIP Electromagnetic Interoperability Issues Working Group.  This report examines EMC issues for Smart Grid equipment on both the electric power system delivery and the power customer sides of the Smart Grid meter and summarizes recommendations for EMC standards.  It is intended as a guide to apply documented EMC principles to better ensure the operation and interoperabilty of the Smart Grid in its intended electromagnetic environments.
