ABSTRACT In this paper, a novel method for EMI (electromagnetic interference) level prediction is proposed. The method is based on the hierarchical structure of the generation of EMI. That is, the determination of EMI level can be divided into three levels, namely the functional level, the transient level and propagation level. The lower level provides parameter values for the higher level. That makes the analysis to be a single direction chain. In functional level, the working points are obtained. Through transient level analysis, the exact noise sources are determined. In propagation level, the high frequency characteristics in the propagation path are expressed including the variation of parasitic parameters. Frequency analysis can be used to get the EMI level measured in the receiver side rapidly. Because this approach is a straight forward method, the impact of any components can be evaluated immediately instead of doing the simulation from begin to end.

    ABSTRACT: It is proposed an approximate approach to simulation of conducted interferences of amplifier of class D on a basis of equivalent circuit with elements, defining generation and propagation of conducted interferences. For calculation we use amplitude, output voltage pulse repetition cycle and duration, and also pulse rise time. Calculation results in the whole correspond to experimental data.
