A Hybrid Approach for Assessments of Equivalent Emission Sources and Electromagnetic Environments

Daniel Vitor Faria Cardia, Carlos A.F. Sartori, Rafael P. B. Muylaert


This paper presents a method for equivalent emission source determination by application of LLAs (Large Loop Antennas). A review of different types of LLAs is carried out and their characteristics regarding emission source evaluation are emphasized. A hybrid technic is applied for obtaining the electric fields based on previous measurement of magnetic fields combined with an analytical and numerical approach. This methodology is proposed as an alternative to face the constraints concerning to the near electric fields measurements and calculations.
