Steve Ferguson will review the testing methods and pitfalls associated with conducting tests for audio/low frequency conducted susceptibility. He'll discuss a recent study identifying errors associated with MIL-STD-461 CS101 when using well-established testing procedures. The discussion will bring in various test approaches from other standards and how they relate to the CS101 method.
He'll include basic approaches to the low-frequency examination for:
