Abstract:
In a dual-plane compact electromagnetic band-gap (CEBG) microstrip structure, patches are etched periodically in the ground plane to prohibit the propagation of electromagnetic waves in certain frequency bands so as to provide filtering functionality. However, the existence of the etched patches in the ground plane becomes a natural concern for the reason that these structures might be more prone to electromagnetic interference from nearby radiating components as compare to a microstrip filter with a perfect ground plane. In this paper, an investigation into the electromagnetic susceptibility of a C-EBG filter structure is presented. This study examines the effects of the the interference source on the performance of a C-EBG structure in terms of the relative frequency, power level, position, and polarization. From the study, useful guidelines are drawn for the applications of EBG microstrip structures in an environment rich in electromagnetic interference.
