A.R. Ruddle. R. Armstrong and A. Galarza, “HEMIS Project (Electrical powertrain HEalth Monitoring for Increased Safety of FEVs): Limitations of electromagnetic standards for vehicles equipped with electrical powertrain”, Chapter 7, Springer Lecture Notes in Mobility, Electric Vehicle System Architecture and Standardization Needs, ISBN 978-3-319-13655-4, Accepted to be published in April 2015.


The HEMIS project is concerned with health monitoring of electrical power-train in order to enhance the maintainability and safety of electric vehicles. Elec-tromagnetic emissions from electrical powertrain will change the electromagnetic environment in vehicles, which may have implications for electromagnetic com-patibility and, because of the high electrical power levels, human exposure to elec-tromagnetic fields. This paper outlines some of the electromagnetic issues under investigation in the project, including limitations of existing test methods for elec-tromagnetic compatibility, and a lack of test methods for the assessment of in-vehicle human exposure, as well as for both electromagnetic compatibility and human field exposure issues relating to wireless charging of traction batteries.
