Abstract—This paper describes the results of a Monte Carlo
simulation to quantify the statistical uncertainty of emission
measurements in the scope of electromagnetic compatibility in a
reverberation chamber. Such a measurement can be performed
based on the average or maximum received power at the
reference antenna. Depending on whether value is measured,
different parameters as the chamber validation factor CVF, the
chamber loading factor CLF or the insertion loss IL are needed
to calculate the total radiated power of a device under test. Each
parameter as well as the measurement itself features its own
statistical uncertainty, which are combined into a joint statistical
uncertainty of the total radiated power, which is analyzed in this
paper.
I. INTRODUCTION
A reverberation chamber (or mode-stirred chamber) is an
alternative test environment for radiated immunity tests and
emissions measurements in the scope of electromagnetic
compatibility. It consists of a shielded room that forms an
electromagnetic cavity resonator and a rotating metallic object
(known as the mode stirrer) to change the boundary conditions
and to obtain a statistically homogenous and isotropic field.
Reverberation chambers are rather popular for immunity
testing [1, Annex D], as their high quality factor allows to
reach high field strengths with only low input powers.
The utilization for emission measurements [1, Annex E]
is unfortunately not that prevalent, as the measured quantity
is the total radiated power of some device under test (DUT)
that cannot be easily compared with standard limits, which are
usually given in terms of a maximum emitted field strength
in a certain distance. A conversion between both quantities
would be possible, if the maximum directivity of the device
under test is known, which is usually not the case.
One solution of this problem is to model the maximum
directivity of a generic device under test as a function of the
frequency and its size [1, Annex E.8]. A more sophisticated
model including the statistical distribution and uncertainty of
the directivity and the conversion of emission limits is given
in [2].
Another solution is to establish conversion factors between
different test environments on an empirical basis as described
in [3]. For a correct application of radiated emission limits, also
the uncertainty of each test environment has to be known. While
such uncertainties are quite well known for the established
test environments like open area test sites or semi-anechoic
chambers, no plausible values are available for reverberation
chambers. The goal of this paper is to determine this uncertainty
for emission measurements.
Section II repeats and summarizes the standard procedure
of emission measurements in reverberation chambers. The
assumptions and simplifications of the utilized simulation
model are given in Sec. III. The following Sections IV, V
and VI contain the probability density functions, cumulative
distribution functions and percentiles of the quantities of
interest, respectively. The main conclusions are summarized in
Sec. VII.
II. MEASUREMENT OF THE TOTAL RADIATED POWER
The total radiated power of any device under test can be
calculated from [1, Eq. (E.1)]
Prad =
PAveRec · ηTx
CVF
(1)
in terms of the average received power PAveRec or from [1,
Eq. (E.2)]
Prad =
PMaxRec · ηTx
CLF · IL
(2)
in terms of the maximum received power PMaxRec. The
efficiency of the transmitting antenna used during the chamber
validation is denoted with ηTx.
The chamber validation factor
CVF =

PAveRec
PInput

Np
(3)
and the chamber loading factor
CLF =
CVF
AVF
(4)
are both determined from the validation of the chamber
performance with the DUT in place [1, Eqs. (B.11) and (B.12)],
where PAveRec is the average received power at the reference
antenna and PInput is the average input power into the chamber,

Statistical Analysis of the Correlation of Emission
Limits for Established and Alternative Test Sites
Hans Georg Krauthäuser, Member, IEEE
Abstract—This paper discusses the correlation of radiated emis-
sion measurements on open area test sites, in TEM waveguides,
fully anechoic rooms and reverberation chambers. Distributions
of all essential factors have been derived and mean and quantile
values are given. Influence of polarization mismatch and directivity
is discussed. Based on the analysis of uncertainties, an alternative
data treatment on open area test sites and in fully anechoic cham-
bers is proposed. A statistical link has been established between
the spherical wave expansion model and the array of point sources
model of directivity.
Index Terms—Directivity, fully anechoic room (FAR), gigahertz
transverse electromagnetic (GTEM), open area test sites (OATS),
polarization mismatch, radiated emission limits, reverberation
chamber (RC), unintentional emitters.
I. INTRODUCTION
HISTORICALLY, emission limits have been developed for
measurements on open area test sites (OATS). In order
to be independent of weather conditions and to reduce ambient
noise, most OATS-like emission measurements are nowadays
done in semianechoic chambers (SAC). No distinction between
OATS and SAC will be made within this paper. Alternative
methods claim to have advantages regarding one or more of
the aspects: speed, costs, reliability, frequency range, and ap-
proximation of reality. These alternative methods include the
reverberation chamber (RC) method and the TEM waveguide
method that are already covered by international standards, e.g.,
[1], [2], and also the fully anechoic room (FAR) method for
which an international standard is in development [3].
This paper will not address the validity of these claims. In-
stead, it focuses on the correlation of the physical quantities
measured by the methods in the case of unintentional radiators.
The analysis is strongly based on the discussion of the statistical
properties of the quantities involved.
Also, this paper will not address the intrinsic uncertainties of
the measurement methods itself. This study is focused on uncer-
tainties of the prediction of a measurement result for a certain
measurement site based on the (supposedly correct) measure-
ment results from another site.
Understanding the directivity patterns for electrically large
sources turns out to be a key topic for the application of alter-

native radiated emission and immunity measurement methods
and is already addressed in various papers, e.g., [4]–[15].
A second important quantity for the correlation of uninten-
tional emissions is the polarization mismatch factor μ.
A. Directivity
Directivity D is defined as the ratio of the radiated power per
unit solid angle Θ(θ, φ) in direction (θ, φ) and the average radi-
ated power 1/(4π) ·
 2π
0
 π
0 Θ(φ, θ) sin θdθdφ = 1/(4π)·PT ,
D(φ, θ) =
4π · Θ(φ, θ)
PT
(1)
where PT is the total radiated power. Most often, one is not
interested in the whole radiation pattern, but in the maximum
of the directivity Dmax which is the directivity of the largest
radiation:
Dmax =
4π · max [Θ(φ, θ)]
PT
. (2)
It is clear that a measured value of Dmax depends on the
angular sampling. The true value is only achieved for very fine
angular resolution on the whole surface of a sphere surrounding
the source region. In this paper, a sampling of the complete
surface of a sphere is denoted as a 3D scan or a 3D case. In
contrast to this 3D case, a 1D case will also be investigated.
The 1D case describes a situation where the samples are located
along a great circle of the sphere surrounding the sources. An
intermediate case occurs in the context of OATS measurements.
Directivity models for unintentional radiators are discussed
in Section III.
B. Polarization Mismatch
The polarization mismatch factor μ ∈ [0, 1] is the fraction of
the measured power to the emitted power in a certain direction
μ(θ, φ) =
Pmeasured(θ, φ)
Pradiated(θ, φ)
. (3)
Linearly polarized antennas are used on OATS or in FAR to
pick up equipment under test (EUT) radiation. Measurements
are done in horizontal and vertical polarizations. For uninten-
tional emitters, having emissions with uniformly distributed po-
larization angles, none of the orientations of the receiving an-
tenna will completely pick up all radiated power. Thus, also
the maximum of both measurements is an uncertain quantity (a
random variable, RV).
The influence of this additional source of uncertainty has been
neglected until now. It will be addressed in Section II-A.

Introduction Validation Emission measurement Conversion of results Further discussion on radiated emission measurements “Monte Carlo Simulation of the Statistical Uncertainty of Emission Measurements in an Ideal Reverberation Chamber” by Mathias Magdowski and Ralf Vick published at the EMC Europe 2017 in Angers/France https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/ document/8094737 Monte Carlo Simulation of the Statistical Uncertainty of Emission Measurements in an Ideal Reverberation Chamber Mathias Magdowski and Ralf Vick Chair for Electromagnetic Compatibility Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany Email: mathias.magdowski@ovgu.de Abstract—This paper describes the results of a Monte Carlo simulation to quantify the statistical uncertainty of emission measurements in the scope of electromagnetic compatibility in a reverberation chamber. Such a measurement can be performed based on the average or maximum received power at the reference antenna. Depending on whether value is measured, different parameters as the chamber validation factor CVF, the chamber loading factor CLF or the insertion loss IL are needed to calculate the total radiated power of a device under test. Each parameter as well as the measurement itself features its own statistical uncertainty, which are combined into a joint statistical uncertainty of the total radiated power, which is analyzed in this paper. I. INTRODUCTION A reverberation chamber (or mode-stirred chamber) is an alternative test environment for radiated immunity tests and emissions measurements in the scope of electromagnetic compatibility. It consists of a shielded room that forms an electromagnetic cavity resonator and a rotating metallic object (known as the mode stirrer) to change the boundary conditions and to obtain a statistically homogenous and isotropic field. Reverberation chambers are rather popular for immunity testing [1, Annex D], as their high quality factor allows to reach high field strengths with only low input powers. The utilization for emission measurements [1, Annex E] is unfortunately not that prevalent, as the measured quantity is the total radiated power of some device under test (DUT) that cannot be easily compared with standard limits, which are usually given in terms of a maximum emitted field strength in a certain distance. A conversion between both quantities would be possible, if the maximum directivity of the device under test is known, which is usually not the case. One solution of this problem is to model the maximum directivity of a generic device under test as a function of the frequency and its size [1, Annex E.8]. A more sophisticated model including the statistical distribution and uncertainty of the directivity and the conversion of emission limits is given in [2]. Another solution is to establish conversion factors between different test environments on an empirical basis as described in [3]. For a correct application of radiated emission limits, also the uncertainty of each test environment has to be known. While such uncertainties are quite well known for the established test environments like open area test sites or semi-anechoic chambers, no plausible values are available for reverberation chambers. The goal of this paper is to determine this uncertainty for emission measurements. Section II repeats and summarizes the standard procedure of emission measurements in reverberation chambers. The assumptions and simplifications of the utilized simulation model are given in Sec. III. The following Sections IV, V and VI contain the probability density functions, cumulative distribution functions and percentiles of the quantities of interest, respectively. The main conclusions are summarized in Sec. VII. II. MEASUREMENT OF THE TOTAL RADIATED POWER The total radiated power of any device under test can be calculated from [1, Eq. (E.1)] Prad = PAveRec · ηTx CVF (1) in terms of the average received power PAveRec or from [1, Eq. (E.2)] Prad = PMaxRec · ηTx CLF · IL (2) in terms of the maximum received power PMaxRec. The efficiency of the transmitting antenna used during the chamber validation is denoted with ηTx. The chamber validation factor CVF = PAveRec PInput Np (3) and the chamber loading factor CLF = CVF AVF (4) are both determined from the validation of the chamber performance with the DUT in place [1, Eqs. (B.11) and (B.12)], where PAveRec is the average received power at the reference antenna and PInput is the average input power into the chamber, 978-1-5386-0689-6/17/$31.00 © 2017 IEEE Mathias Magdowski Conversion factors for RVCs 2023-06-29 16 / 31

Distributions of all essential factors have been derived and mean and quantile values are given. Influence of polarization mismatch and directivity is discussed. Based on the analysis of uncertainties, an alternative data treatment on open area test sites and in fully anechoic cham- bers is proposed. A statistical link has been established between the spherical wave expansion model and the array of point sources model of directivity. Index Terms—Directivity, fully anechoic room (FAR), gigahertz transverse electromagnetic (GTEM), open area test sites (OATS), polarization mismatch, radiated emission limits, reverberation chamber (RC), unintentional emitters. I. INTRODUCTION HISTORICALLY, emission limits have been developed for measurements on open area test sites (OATS). In order to be independent of weather conditions and to reduce ambient noise, most OATS-like emission measurements are nowadays done in semianechoic chambers (SAC). No distinction between OATS and SAC will be made within this paper. Alternative methods claim to have advantages regarding one or more of the aspects: speed, costs, reliability, frequency range, and ap- proximation of reality. These alternative methods include the reverberation chamber (RC) method and the TEM waveguide method that are already covered by international standards, e.g., [1], [2], and also the fully anechoic room (FAR) method for which an international standard is in development [3]. This paper will not address the validity of these claims. In- stead, it focuses on the correlation of the physical quantities measured by the methods in the case of unintentional radiators. The analysis is strongly based on the discussion of the statistical properties of the quantities involved. Also, this paper will not address the intrinsic uncertainties of the measurement methods itself. This study is focused on uncer- tainties of the prediction of a measurement result for a certain measurement site based on the (supposedly correct) measure- ment results from another site.

Digital Object Identifier 10.1109/TEMC.2010.2102764 native radiated emission and immunity measurement methods and is already addressed in various papers, e.g., [4]–[15]. A second important quantity for the correlation of uninten- tional emissions is the polarization mismatch factor μ. A. Directivity Directivity D is defined as the ratio of the radiated power per unit solid angle Θ(θ, φ) in direction (θ, φ) and the average radi- ated power 1/(4π) · 2π 0 π 0 Θ(φ, θ) sin θdθdφ = 1/(4π)·PT , D(φ, θ) = 4π · Θ(φ, θ) PT (1) where PT is the total radiated power. Most often, one is not interested in the whole radiation pattern, but in the maximum of the directivity Dmax which is the directivity of the largest radiation: Dmax = 4π · max [Θ(φ, θ)] PT . (2) It is clear that a measured value of Dmax depends on the angular sampling. The true value is only achieved for very fine angular resolution on the whole surface of a sphere surrounding the source region. In this paper, a sampling of the complete surface of a sphere is denoted as a 3D scan or a 3D case. In contrast to this 3D case, a 1D case will also be investigated. The 1D case describes a situation where the samples are located along a great circle of the sphere surrounding the sources. An intermediate case occurs in the context of OATS measurements. Directivity models for unintentional radiators are discussed in Section III. B. Polarization Mismatch The polarization mismatch factor μ ∈ [0, 1] is the fraction of the measured power to the emitted power in a certain direction μ(θ, φ) = Pmeasured(θ, φ) Pradiated(θ, φ) . (3) Linearly polarized antennas are used on OATS or in FAR to pick up equipment under test (EUT) radiation. Measurements are done in horizontal and vertical polarizations. For uninten- tional emitters, having emissions with uniformly distributed po- larization angles, none of the orientations of the receiving an- tenna will completely pick up all radiated power. Thus, also the maximum of both measurements is an uncertain quantity (a random variable, RV). The influence of this additional source of uncertainty has been neglected until now. It will be addressed in Section II-A. 0018-9375/$26.00 © 2011 IEEE Mathias Magdowski Conversion factors for RVCs 2023-06-29 25 / 31
