Vehicle Level EMC Testing Methodology and Correlation 851646
This paper describes an indoor electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing facility designed for automotive testing over the 60 Hz to 18 GHz frequency range. The facility includes a large TEM cell, covering the 60 Hz to 20 MHz frequency range, and a state-of-the-art anechoic chamber, covering 20 MHz to 18 GHz. In addition to describing the test cells, this paper discusses testing methodology, automatic testing software and calibration. Data is presented depicting the electromagnetic field distribution in each test cell with and without the test vehicle in place. Data is also presented showing a typical field distribution near a high power shortwave transmitter site for correlation purposes.
