ABSTRACT We analyze the wave propagation characteristic of the CISPR 25 radiated emission test setup with numerical simulations. Bad repeatability of the standardized ALSE validation procedure urged us to develop a new, more stable procedure. Our new validation procedure uses a small conical, dipole antenna instead of the test harness which improves the repeatability and avoids impedance problems of the artificial network and the noise source. Furthermore it allows precise measurements to investigate the influence of test bench dimensions and grounding. Results of these investigations are shown

    ABSTRACT: This paper introduces a new artificial neural networks (ANNs)-based reverse-modeling approach for efficient electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) analysis of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and shielding enclosures. The proposed approach improves the accuracy of conventional or standard neural models by reversing the input-output variables in a systematic manner, while keeping the model structures simple relative to complex knowledge-based ANNs (e.g., KBNNs). The approach facilitates accurate and fast neural network modeling of realistic EMC scenarios where training data are expensive and sparse. To establish accuracy, efficiency, and feasibility of the proposed reverse-modeling approach, PCB structures such as perforated surface-mount shields and partially shielded PCB traces are treated as proof-of-concept examples. Although the modeling examples presented in the paper are based on training data from EM simulations, the approach is generic and hence valid for EMC modeling based on the measurement data. The approach is particularly useful in the electronic manufacturing industry where PCB layouts are frequently reused with minor modifications to the existing time-tested designs.

    ABSTRACT: The CISPR-25 standard is used in the automotive industry to characterize the electromagnetic radiation of electronic components. The setup is comprised of an electronic device, a cable harness, a metallic table, and an antenna. Dimensions stretch from a couple of meters for the setup to fractions of a millimeter for printed circuit board features. Numerical prediction of radiated emissions (RE) is of great usefulness for prediction of potential electromagnetic compatibility nonconformities in the early design process, but extremely difficult to be done for this setup as a whole. In this paper, we demonstrate how RE can efficiently be computed based on a setup as commonly used to model conducted emissions only, i.e., electric control unit and harness on infinite-ground plane. Applying Huygens principle and using it to generate a fixed transfer function between a particularly chosen Huygens surface and the antenna, we arrive at a novel computing scheme for RE. The scheme is applied for the antenna model and antenna factor-based calculations and demonstrates agreement with measurements within 5 dB range.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes a new way to verify the performance of an absorber lined shielded enclosure(ALSE) in accordance with CISPR25, EMC standards dedicated to testing automotive components. CISPR16 requires the use of NSA and VSWR methods to test the performance of a chamber. As for CISPR25, however, there hasn't been standardized ways to verify the performance of ALSE. This paper purports to present an improved method for the verification based on a long-wire antenna method under discussion at CISPR25 JFT. Existing discussions on a long-wire antenna method proposes that an antenna should reach 500 millimeters in length, while this paper adopts the antenna length of 1,700 millimeters. This paper also assesses the effects of matching conditions and studies problems related to methods which have been already proposed and key parameters in order to improve verification methods.
