Testing and measurement techniques General guide on harmonics and inter-harmonics measurements and instrumentation, for power supply systems and equipment connected thereto.
Harmonics tests according to the Japanese version of IEC require a Japanese test impedance, but in this article we will concentrate on European CE marking tests, and the requirements of the IEC harmonics tests demand a very low test system impedance. Although rare, some voltage-change flicker meter suppliers made implementation errors. Test procedure of islanding prevention measures for utility-interconnected photo-voltaic inverters.
To guarantee a voltage distortion below 0. The lamp should be connected very close to the power source terminals, to avoid voltage drop through the wiring.
Also, products with fluctuating power draw, such as microwave ovens, washing machines, dryers, and air conditioning equipment, impose more demands on the test system, although it is mainly the analyzer response that is of concern for these products. This analyzer verification process is somewhat complex, and even though individual users could attempt to do an in-house test it is recommended to rely on certified testing authorities for compliance verification.
Note that the voltage distortion requirements, along with the maximum allowed deviation from the crest factor dictate a very kec system impedance.
The tops and valleys of the sine wave were flattened.
Automotive supply simulation system. For harmonics testing, this needs to be bypassed, either by wiring or by internal switches. First we will assume that the analyzer is fully compliant with the standard, and concentrate on system integration issues, because these have been shown to occur more frequently. Actually, a bigger load would be preferred, but since most household dimmers are limited to W or less, this value is used for the test which will we now describe in more detail.
To give an example of the effect of this system impedance, Fig. 6100-32- maximum fifth harmonic voltage distortion is allowed to be 0.

As long as the average number of load changes are about 8 – 9 per minute actually 8. Application and interpretation of fundamental definitions and terms.
John Woodgate can be contacted by Email: Agricultural and forestry machinery Electromagnetic compatibility Test methods and acceptance criteria.
European Generic emission standard Part 1 Domestic, commercial and light industry environment, replaced by EN Also, NPL has offered product certification services for a number of years, and has made details about testing methods available in the form of papers. If however, the lower order harmonics say below the 15th show discrepancies that exceed 10 mA, one has to be concerned and look into the subject system in more detail. Table 2 Harmonic emissions of a dimmer.
Uncertainties, statistics and limit modeling Uncertainties in-standardized EMC tests. In the above example, one could, of course, modulate the dimmer control?
It is a compromise between cost and the performance of extra electronic front end circuits, the so called active power factor correcting circuits.
Observe also that the flicker meter should report a P lt reading of 0. Vehicles, boats and internal combustion engines – Radio disturbance characteristics Limits and methods of measurement for the 6010-3-2 of on-board receivers. In addition to the analysis tasks, it is desirable to store the analysis results, preferably of each ms window, and thus the? Voltage dips, short interruptions and voltage variations on d.

The difference between the system voltage with just the lamp and the voltage measured when the heater load is added should be very small. Just like nobody in an EMC test lab is going to verify the mathematical functions used in an RF receiver and spectrum analyzer, it is not the task of an EMC test laboratory to do a complete equipment certification survey for harmonics and voltage fluctuation analysis.
For manufacturers who just want to test specific lower power products, the source and interconnect requirements can often be less severe.
Smoothing the DC voltage can also be effected by inductorsbut these are much more expensive, and have relatively large size, and large weight, but would generate much less harmonic currents. The tested product current in amps times the total system parasitic inductance expressed in microhenrys should be less than
