The incidence of systems affected by electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) in nuclear power plants has increased considerably recently, due to the replacement of analog with digital equipment. It is a consequence of the development of new technologies, which are more susceptible to interference. In addition, more attention is required to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in the designs, as well as the tendency to use wireless connection equipment. It has introduced more noise in the work environment. This review made an analysis of the events that have been presented in different systems related to electromagnetic interference in nuclear power plants. Such events could reduce the safety of the plant. Also, some recommendations in the electromagnetic compatibility design of instrumentation and control systems are discussed.
