Minimum Usage of Ferrite Tiles in Anechoic Chambers
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research B, Vol. 19, 367-383, 2010
Abstract
Anechoic chambers which are used for emission and immunity testing require expensive ferrite tiles on their inner surfaces. This paper describes a method to reduce the number of required ferrite tiles, whilst ensuring a reliable and specified test region. In this method, the positions of some ferrite tiles are found optimally to keep the performance of the anechoic chamber as high as possible. An optimum ray-tracing method is presented to predict the electric field in the anechoic chamber. The performance of the proposed method is verified by a comprehensive example simulated by the CST software, which is a full-wave simulator based on time difference method.
