Alternative conducted emission measurements on mains without LISNs
Rights accessOpen Access
Conducted emission tests are always performed by the use of LISNs in laboratories in accordance with CISPR22, CISPR11 and other similar standards. However, it is not always possible to use LISNs because of some limitations. If the EUT (Equipment Under Test) has large dimensions or high currents, it is not, for most of the time, possible to send it to an EMC laboratory or to use LISNs during the test. As a consequence, usage or development of alternative conducted emission test methods is inevitable in industry. In this paper, we made conducted measurements on actual EUTs in alternative environments whose impedances are different from the standard LISN impedance and continued to establish the fundamentals of alternative conducted emission tests based on the impedance measurements of the EUT, supply and used cables. We also established the correlation, on the basis of impedance measurements, between these alternative conducted emission test method and the reference conducted emission test method.
