Abstract

This paper deals with the near-field to far-field calculation for far-field characteristics of antenna and electromagnetic compatibility(EMC) testing. Since the conventional EMC testing process is inefficient such as measurements of the wide band signals and mega structures, Stratton-Chu formula is used to predict the far-field emission by simple and direct process. The usefulness of Stratton-Chu formula is verified by comparing to the analytic solution of the uniform distribution aperture in free-space. In order to inspect the far-fields and to get the near-field values, full-wave simulation solver is utilized. Through the full-wave simulation about the patch antenna, calculated far-field results from Stratton-Chu formula are proven. The predicted magnitudes of the far-field are in error by less than 6 %.
