Project Description

Enerpro, Inc. (Goleta, CA) carried out Radiated Susceptibility testing today in the Cal Poly EMC (ElectroMagnetic Compatibility) Chamber Laboratory. Enerpro also provided funding to route three-phase power to the EMC chamber to facilitate today’s test. James (JT) Matherly, Cal Poly EE graduate, and Tom Bourbeau, Vice-President of Engineering (below) carried out tests on a power electronics unit used to supply power to locomotive electrical systems. Mr. Bourbeau’s son Tyler toured the Cal Poly campus as a prospective student.

The Enerpro unit is a three-phase current and voltage regulated SCR rectifier, capable of supplying up to 425A at 74VDC for battery charging and auxiliary power on rail locomotives.
