Reference electromagnetic field radiators for use in interlaboratory comparisons of far-field measurements can be accurately characterized through the comparison between simulations and measurements, provided that measurements are designed to minimize uncertainty and in particular to avoid electromagnetic environment (site) effects. It is well known that… (More)
—Considerable inaccuracy can be introduced in RF current measurements through loading effects from the transformer-type RF current probes. A physical model, which consists of a lumped impedance in series with the flow of the current under measurement, is obtained. The correlation between the loading (insertion) impedance and the geometrical and physical… (More)
The basic design equations of current probes for high-energy impulse measurements are derived and experimentally verified. In particular, attention is here paid on the minimization of impulse distortion due to saturation effects of the magnetic core and high-pass response of the probe.
—A simple, well-established (although in applications different from electromagnetic compatibility), amenable to direct interpretation, and inexpensive method for the time-domain characterization of the measurement systems used for the calibration of the standard impulse generators for immunity tests is presented. The validity and general applicability of… (More)
graduate Teaching Award in 2007. Abstract—The " Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement " (GUM) provides the theoretical framework which is worldwide adopted for the evaluation of measurement uncertainty, including the application to calibration and testing. The GUM uncertainty approach has however fundamental limits. If these limits are… (More)
– The Maximum Entropy probability density function associated with the testable information on the range and the first and second order moments of the random quantity of interest is derived. The validity of such approach is experimentally demonstrated through comparison between the proposed maximum entropy distribution and the U-shaped distribution. The… (More)
