B25) Estimates of the Δ-AN voltage division factors F (F and F )
AN AN_asymmetric AN_symmetric
are assumed to be available from a calibration report, along with their expanded
uncertainties and coverage factors.
B26) CISPR 16-1-2 defines the CM impedance of the 150 Ω Δ-AN as 150 Ω with a

magnitude tolerance of ±30 Ω and a phase tolerance of ± 40°. Taking the extremes of

all combinations of the constrained AN CM impedance and the unconstrained EUT
impedance the estimate of the correction δZ is zero with a deviation of
AN-CM

+ 5,37/– 1,94 dB. A triangular probability distribution is assumed because there is

only a small chance of encountering the particular combinations of AN impedance

and EUT impedance needed to produce those extremes. The triangular distribution is

assumed to be symmetric.

The actual uncertainty will be reduced if the actual CM impedance does not reach the

tolerance limits.
CISPR 16-1-2 defines the DM impedance of the 150 Ω Δ-AN as 150 Ω with a

magnitude tolerance of ± 30 Ω and a phase tolerance of ±40°. Taking the extremes of

all combinations of the constrained AN differential mode impedance and the
is zero with a
unconstrained EUT impedance the estimate of the correction δZ
AN-DM

deviation of +5,37/–1,94 dB. A triangular probability distribution is assumed because

there is only a small chance of encountering the particular combinations of AN
impedance and EUT impedance needed to produce those extremes. The triangular
distribution is assumed to be symmetric.

The actual uncertainty will be reduced if the actual DM impedance does not reach the

tolerance limits.

B27) For measurements using a Δ-AN, disturbances from the AC mains, other kind of

power supply or from an external load are assumed to be suppressed by the Δ-AN

itself or by additional filters inserted in the power supply line – if necessary.

For an LPDA antenna, the correction δF was assumed to be applied e.g. by
aph
equivalent corrections of the AFs for the specified measurement distance (see

CISPR 16-2-3). The remaining reduced uncertainty is given in Tables D.3 and D.4 with a

rectangular probability distribution, having a half-width evaluated by considering the

effect of an error of ± 0,07 m in the separation, and assuming that field strength is

inversely proportional to separation. For example for d = 10 m,
20 lg(1 + 0,07/10) = 0,06 dB.

NOTE 4 If a tuned dipole is the measuring antenna, the correction δF is negligible.

NOTE 5 For hybrid antennas, the correction δF for the systematic effect is more complicated [see

comment D12)].

D12) Hybrid antennas are taken into account in the calculation of Tables D.7, D.8 and D.9.

Hybrid antennas, used for radiated disturbance measurements in the frequency range

30 MHz to 1 000 MHz and consisting of a broadband dipole section and an LPDA

antenna section, typically have the following characteristics (different parameters for

specific designs may be provided by antenna manufacturers):
– a frequency range up to about 100 MHz, where the antenna acts like a biconical
antenna (see Tables D.1, D.2 and D.5);
– a transition frequency range from about 100 MHz up to about 200 MHz (see below
within this comment); and
– a frequency range above about 200 MHz where the antenna acts like an LPDA

antenna (see Tables D.3, D.4 and D.6). For the correction δF it is considered that

adir

the LPDA part is usually closer to the EUT than above in comment D3), which means

that the correction factors are slightly higher and the uncertainties are slightly larger.

In the frequency range up to 100 MHz, the following is assumed:

– the AF variation relative to F for horizontal polarization at a height of 1 m reaches a

maximum vs. frequency of ± 2 dB around 60 MHz and at a height of 4 m the variation

is around ± 0,5 dB (data specific for individual antenna types need to be supplied by

the antenna manufacturer). Since at horizontal polarization the antenna height for

OATS/SAC measurements in the frequency range below 100 MHz is at its maximum,
the lower AF height deviation has been assumed.
In the transition frequency range, the following may be assumed for uncertainty
considerations:

– the antenna gain (in dBi) and, by association, the pattern directivity (in dB), increase

linearly with the frequency (detailed antenna patterns for the correction δF may be

adir
obtained from the manufacturer);
– as the frequency increases, the active phase centre travels linearly from the
broadband dipole elements to the 200 MHz elements of the LPDA part [a detailed
calculation of the AF correction δF is given below in Equation (D.4)];
aph
– the cross polarization suppression is equal to or above 20 dB; and
– the balun imbalance will normally be as low as that of the broadband dipole
elements.

It is assumed that the antenna is provided with free-space AFs. Free-space AFs apply

to the location of the phase centre. Because the phase centre location on the antenna is

frequency dependent, the distance from a fixed EUT is also frequency dependent.

Equation (8) of CISPR 16-2-3:2016, as well as Equation (A.1) of CISPR 16-1-6:2014 [18],

suggests a field-strength correction. For a given frequency, the following correction, ΔE in dB,

is added to the measured electric field strength:
