Noise Sources in Electric Vehicles

With electric vehicles becoming more common, the electromagnetic noise they generate is an issue that more designers must face. Ms.  Burnham brings lessons learned from several years of troubleshooting electric vehicles, both hybrid and plug in, to discuss some of the most important EV noise factors.
