Standard for Assessment of Human Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields from Radiative Wireless Power Transfer Systems: Measurement and Computational Methods (Frequency Range of 30 MHz to 300 GHz)

This standard specifies methods to assess compliance of wireless power transfer (WPT) systems operating in the frequency range from 30 MHz to 300 GHz with electromagnetic guidelines on human exposure. This includes evaluation of the incident electric and magnetic field strength, incident power density, specific absorption rate, and absorbed power density at any distance at which the human body may be exposed, i.e., from the reactive near-field to the far-field region.

IEC/IEEE Draft International Standard - Measurement procedure for the assessment of specific absorption rate of human exposure to radio frequency fields from hand-held and body-mounted wireless communication devices u2013 Part 3: Vector measurement-based systems (Frequency range of 300 MHz to 6 GHz)

This part of IEC/IEEE 62209 specifies measurement protocols and test procedures for the reproducible measurement of peak spatial-average specific absorption rate (psSAR) induced inside a simplified model of a human head or body by radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices, with a specified measurement uncertainty. Requirements are provided for psSAR assessment using vector measurement-based systems. A vector measurement-based system may have different technical solutions such as scanning system or an array system. Such systems determine the psSAR by three-dimensional (3D) field reconstruction within the volume of interest in accordance with the requirements herein for the measurement system, calibration, uncertainty assessment and validation methods. The protocols and procedures apply for the psSAR assessments covering a significant majority of people including children during use of wireless communication devices operated in close proximity to the head or body. This document is applicable to wireless communication devices intended to be used at a position near the human head or body at distances up to and including 200 mm. This document can be employed to evaluate SAR compliance of different types of wireless communication devices used next to the ear, in front of the face, mounted on the body, combined with other RF-transmitting or non-transmitting devices or accessories (e.g. belt-clip), or embedded in garments. The overall applicable frequency range is from 300 MHz to 6 GHz. The system validation procedures provided within this document cover frequencies from 300 MHz to 6 GHz. The wireless communication device categories covered include but are not limited to mobile telephones, cordless microphones, auxiliary broadcast devices and radio transmitters in personal computers, desktop and laptop devices, multi-band, multi-antenna, and push-to-talk devices.

IEC/IEEE Draft International Standard - Assessment methods of the human exposure to electric and magnetic fields from wireless power transfer systems - models, instrumentation, measurement and numerical methods and procedures (Frequency range of 1 kHz to 30 MHz)

The objective of this document is to specify the assessment methods to evaluate compliance of stationary and dynamic wireless power transfer (WPT) systems with electromagnetic human exposure guidelines (specific absorption rate (SAR), internal electric fields, or current density including contact currents). The frequency range covered by this document is from 1 kHz to 30 MHz. This version of the standard focuses on exposures from inductive WPT systems. Future versions will consider extended guidance for assessments of exposure from capacitive WPT systems.
