Directivity of the Test Device in EMC Measurements1



Galen H. Koepke, David A. Hill, John M. Ladbury


We present a statistical theory for estimating the directive characteristics of unintentional emitters based on the electrical size of the device. We compare this theory to directivity derived from pattern measurements in an anechoic chamber. We also use this theory to predict the maximum radiated fields based on total-radiated-power measurements in the reverberation chamber.
