CIM 2017: Novel harmonic current generator for EMC testing

Harmonic current generator

The EURAMET stand at International Metrology Congress will have demonstrations of the harmonic current generator developed in EMRP project  

Testing electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) to comply with the EMC Directive is essential for all electrical and electronic products. Some products, particularly large pieces of equipment, fall outside existing guidelines so industry has developed a range of non-standard, alternative EMC test methods. However there is little information available on the performance, characterisation, validations or traceability of the results from these techniques. EMRP project Improved EMC test methods in industrial environments (IND60 EMC) improved the existing test methods, developed new methods and produced reference devices to verify the tests.

Project partners designed a frequency adaptive harmonic current generator with many novel features to generate and measure defined harmonics. Reference sources were developed and measured by the project partners in three inter-laboratory comparison tests. The generator will be demonstrated on the EURAMET stand at the Metrology Village at CIM 2017.

This instrument and other innovative devices will be demonstrated on the EURAMET stand at the 18th International Metrology Congress (CIM 2017) on the 19-21 September 2017.
The full congress programme and registration details can be found on the congress website.

Visit EURAMET at CIM 2017 to see this and other innovative devices.
