Abstract : This report discusses the performance of power line feedthrough capacitors at radio frequencies, in connection with their use in electromagnetic compatibility testing. Such capacitors are used in measuring spurious power line emissions from electronic equipment. Putting the power lines through these capacitors serves two purposes: (a) to prevent spurious signals on the power line from affecting the measurement, and (b) to standardize the impedance seen from the equipment power terminals. The effectiveness of the capacitor will depend, among other things, on the RF impedance of the power line, both looking out toward the power source, and in toward the equipment. (Author)
