IMPROVEMENT OF SURVIVABILITY OF A POWER PLANT’S DIRECT CURRENT AUXILIARY POWER SYSTEM UNDER ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE (HEMP)
Keywords:Power Plant, Electromagnetic Pulse, Hemp, Direct Current Auxiliary Power System
High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) is a challenging agent aimed to destroy the most critical types of electronic equipment in the most important components of national infrastructure. The article addresses the issue of improvement of a power plant’s direct current auxiliary power systems (DCAPS) survivability under HEMP impact, and suggests certain simple measures and affordable technical means that ensure significant improvement of DCAPS’s resistance to HEMP.
