Putting Nuclear Electromagnetic Bursts Under Control
EMP is an nuclear electromagnetic pulse that bursts due to radiation caused by nuclear explosions. There are various different fighting devices that have been designed t o cause this electromagnetic burst. These burst are invisible they occur naturally in nature during a lightning strike and hence cause electrical disruptions nearby. This bursts are likely to cause a lot of perils including nationwide blackout of the electric power grid, and a shutdown of critical infrastructure reliant on the grid.
Detonation of a nuclear bomb, solar flare, a device intended to cause an EMP, close lightning stroke and finally a massive powerline short circuit are some of the factors that may cause electromagnetic bursts. Nuclear explosions do not happen at any time unless it is a terrorist attack. Solar flare mostly happen though it is harmless not unless it is in extreme.Some of electrical appliances can cause electromagnetic burst to be in excess they include computers and computer equipments, appliances containing microprocessors, automobile electronic ignition, power fuses, TV cameras, computer disks among others. Not all electronic appliances are prone the electromagnetic bursts some are actually very immune they include computers and computer equipments, appliances containing microprocessors, automobile electronic ignition, power fuses, TV cameras, computer disks among others.
Electricity has become part of our daily lives starting with food production and preservation , transport and communication for both domestic and commercial use. There are various ways in which one should prepare for nuclear magnetic burst this is a time where there is blackout hence the electrical energy is not available hence repairing non electrical equipment is of importance starting with the cook the radio battery , iron box and others. To ensure smooth time during the blackout it is good to ensure that equipments made of a semiconductor are avoided as much as possible where one cannot do without them it is good to check the voltage levels to ensure that they are rated to maximum voltage and currents of about ten times. Use large ferrite beads on power wiring, provide battery backup power for essential equipments. Use of faraday cage or bag this is any conductive structure that protects its content from electricity pulses. The burst can lead to loss of network also the mobile phones may go off due to this reason it is advisable to use other devices to communicate an example use of walkie talkie and CB radios. Make your own electricity power source an example the use of solar panels, biogas, wind turbine generator among others. Grow food crops to get a food supply source. It is advisable not to rely on food production industries to avoid running out of food.
Various measures should be put into place to avoid damage that is brought about by the electromagnetic burst such include shield wiring connected to sensitive equipments or enclose wiring in metal conguits, fuse long wires and cables, increase the current carrying capacity of the building ground.
