A military and aerospace transient generator simulates transients, random surges of energy, to perform conducted spike susceptibility tests. When activated, a transient generator will generate a short pulse, mimicking a real-world source of interference. Transient generators are often required to verify that aerospace or military electronic components meet conducted susceptibility standards. These generators, in accordance with EMI and EMC test standards, will produce common voltage spikes, oscillations, and a variety of other electric phenomena to AC and DC network lines. Personnel in the military and aerospace fields rely on transient generators like those below for the testing of ship and airplane systems, especially cable bundles which may be especially susceptible to brownouts from power fluctuations. Military and aerospace transient generators are used for compliance and pre-compliance testing and are used for standards testing like MIL-STD 461 CS115 and CS116.
