Abstract : Government and commercial facilities are becoming more operationally dependent on sensitive and complex electronics systems. These systems require precise and continuous supply of electric power for trouble-free operation. Desensitization of sensitive electronic equipment to power supply abnormalities is one approach toward achieving increased operational reliability. This report covers the results of an experimental investigation to determine the susceptibility limits of a selected solid state electronic test unit and to evaluate techniques for desensitizing the unit to a variety of typical power line transients. It was concluded that when sensitive electronic systems are being developed, susceptibility tests should be performed to provide design criteria for desensitizing the equipment on a cost effective basis.
