Microwave Oven Signal Modelling


The microwave oven (MWO) is a commonly available appliance that does not transmit data but still radiates signals in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. The MWO thus acts as an unintentional interferer for IEEE 802.11 Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) communication signals. An analytic model of the MWO signal is developed and studied in this paper. The model's efficacy is studied via simulation and experimental emulation.
