Shielding of the high voltage cabling is a cost effective method for reducing unwanted EMI in hybrid and electric vehicles. Ensuring the shielding effectiveness (SE) of the high voltage (HV) cabling and connectors is critical at the component and subsystem level. The effectiveness of the shielding must also be proven for the useful life of the vehicle. This paper will examine some of the critical aspects of ensuring good SE of HV cabling and connectors in hybrid and electric vehicles. This paper will also review some of the test methods utilized to make these measurements.
