This webinar provides instruction on testing associated with qualifying utilization products for compliance with MIL-STD-1275 Military Vehicle Power Characteristics. Revision “E” is current but variances of prior revisions are noted in the presentation because vehicle power quality have varied over the years since this standard was originally developed.  Requirements dealing with voltage stability, transient disturbances (spikes and surges), vehicle operation variances and other power tolerance issues associated with military vehicle power will be the focus of this presentation.  Discussion includes methods to test and evaluate for compliance.

This webinar discusses testing requirements associated with shipboard power for utilization equipment.  AC power (MIL-STD-1399-300B) and DC power (MIL-STD-1399-390) test methods are reviewed with a focus on application of the standard.  Power (voltage and frequency) variation, transient issues, distortion loading and collection of data necessary for ship integration are integral to this presentation.  This class content is essential to those responsible for product design and evaluation for power quality associated with shipboard electronic equipment integration.

MIL-STD-704 has seen several revisions since first introduced as the quality of aircraft power systems have evolved.  This class examines the various test and evaluation requirements associated with aircraft utilization equipment including variances between revisions.  Steady state power, interruptions, transients and data collection are reviewed.  This class should be attended by those dealing with equipment design and qualification for aircraft power.

The Presenter


Steven G. Ferguson has been working in EMC, Safety, MIL-STD, Nuclear, Energy and related compliance engineering and test for over 35 years at test laboratories and manufacturers. His work includes designing products, developing procedures, performing tests and advising developers on routes and techniques for attaining product compliance. He has been directly involved with EMC design and compliance evaluation for many systems including several power plants (facilities and equipment qualification), hospitals, presidential aircraft, the Space Shuttle and Hubble Space Telescope. He presents various courses on EMI/EMC compliance including EMC for Nuclear Power Facilities, Architectural Shielding and a hands-on course MIL-STD-461 testing at the WLL facility in Maryland and on-site for multiple government and industrial clients. His work also includes EMC, Environmental and Safety evaluations for commercial, military and medical devices and training of hundreds of personnel on test and evaluation techniques. He has authored several papers on equipment qualification and evaluation techniques with presentations at many conferences. He is a member of the TR-102323 Working Group and supported preparation of Revision 4.
