This section of IEC 61000-2 defines the high-altitudeelectromagnetic pulse (HEMP) environment that is one of theconsequences of a high-altitude nuclear explosion.Those dealing with this subject consider two cases:- high-altitude nuclear explosions;- low-altitude nuclear explosions.For civil systems, the most important case is the high-altitudenuclear explosion. In this case, the other effects of the nuclearexplosion: blast, ground shock, thermal and nuclear ionizingradiation are not present at the ground level. However theelectromagnetic pulse associated with the explosion may causedisruption of, and damage to, communication, electronic andelectric power systems thereby upsetting the stability of modernsociety.The object of this standard is to establish a common reference forthe HEMP environment in order to select realistic stresses to applyto victim equipment for evaluating their performance.
