Abstract

The results of measurements of electromagnetic disturbances emitted by LED lamps, in the frequency range from 30 MHz to 300 MHz, which were made using two methods described in the EN 55015/2013 standard have been presented in the paper. In order to compare both methods, each tested lamp was first measured using the traditional method described in Section4.4.2 and then tested by an alternative, equivalent method described in Annex B of the above-mentioned standard. The comparison of results for both methods indicates that using first method, a given LED lamp emits disturbances below the acceptable limits, while the same LED lamp tested with the second method emits disturbances that are at the limit of admissible values. Additionally, used statistical tools in the form of calculated linear correlation coefficient show that the nature of the emission of disturbances measured for the same lamp is very comparable in both methods. The reference of these quasi-peak values to the permissible limits applicable in one or the other method may lead to different decisions.
