Measurement campaign in the EMC Laboratory at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg

From 18 to 23 September 2023, our colleagues from EMC Barcelona, Marco A. Azpurua and Jordi Solé Lloveras, participated in a measurement campaign in the EMC Laboratory at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. This measurement session was organized by technical experts from IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) TC82 (Solar photovoltaic energy systems) – CEN and CENELEC TC219 (Mains communicating systems).

🎯 The goal of the experiments performed there was to investigate the magnetic field emissions measurement methods in the 9 kHz - 30 MHz frequency range with a focus on the propagation of PLC signals. Inverters and PLC modules were employed in the process. The influence of the measurement setup, cabling, measurement distances, and the differences between laboratory and on-site tests were studied. Time-domain measurement systems were extensively employed in the process.

The consortium of the EMC-STD project would like to thank the excellent experts who took part in this uptake action: Riccardo FIORELLI, Cedric Lavenu, Ingomar Müller, Christian Fasthuber, Ming Ye, Moawia Al-Hamid, Ralf Vick (EMV Group Chair), and Yasutoshi Yoshioka (Our Chief Stakeholder from Fuji Electric Co., Ltd.).

We look forward to a follow-up collaboration!
