This recommended practice describes the methods used to characterize and used to classify the near magnetic field and near electric field performance of power magnetic components that are used in ac-dc and dc-dc power converters that conduct ac current or ac current superimposed on dc current. This document differentiates the type equipment used only to detect dc fields from equipment used to detect ac fields. This document also identifies the test conditions that need to be defined to categorize the near magnetic field and electric field performance. These conditions include the following: position and distance of detection coil from the component under test, orientation of detection probe relative to the component under test and excitation and loading conditions of the component under test based on operating voltages, currents, waveforms, frequency, etc., consistent with target applications.

Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
No Active Projects
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
