The average degradation rate for the four modules types was 0.71 % per year. The analysis showed that losses of short-circuit current were responsible ...

  • Measurements of antenna characteristics above different conducting planes

    Antenna measurements by the three-antenna method at five different types of open-area test site (OATS) are reported. The measurement repeatability of site insertion losses (SIL) and antenna factors (AF) of tuned dipole antennas are discussed in this paper. Deviations of measured SIL with a pair of tuned dipole antennas are shown in comparison with the predicted ones. The predicted SIL is calculated by combining the measured S-parameters of the balun and the impedance matrix of the antenna elements. The results of SIL measurement at four frequencies are distributed around the predicted ones. SILs measured at 24 frequencies with a pair of tuned dipoles were provided by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and we measured SILs under the same conditions as at NPL. The results are shown in comparison with the predicted SILs. The differences in the SILs measured by the two laboratories were within /spl plusmn/0.4 dB from the predicted SILs over the frequency range 30 MHz to 1000 MHz. For the case of AF, the results obtained show that the repeatability of the AF for a tuned dipole antenna is within /spl plusmn/0.3 dB when measured at the same height above a conducting plane.

  • A new method of electric field intensity calculation on EMI measurements in GTEM cell

But the difference between the calculated results of these methods and the EMI results measured in OATS (open area test site) is very large in some situation. This article provides a new method to calculate electric field intensity in GTEM cell using the equivalent dipole of the radiator. And series of experiments were performed to prove the validity and advantage of this method. The experiment results show that the calculated results of new method is more agree with the measured results in OATS, which means that the new method can be considered as a more approached way to calculate the electric field intensity in GTEM cell for EMI measurements.

  • Novel supervised classification approach for multifrequency polarimetric SAR data

    A novel method is proposed for the supervised classification of multifrequency polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) images. The coherency matrices in P-, L-, and C-bands are mapped onto a 9×9 matrix Ω based on the eigenvalue decomposition of the coherency matrix of each band. A boxcar filter is then performed on the matrix Ω. The filtered data are put into a complex Wishart classifier. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated with JPL/AIRSAR multifrequency PolSAR data acquired over the Flevoland area.

  • Degradation analysis of weathered crystalline-silicon PV modules

    We present an analysis of the results of a solar weathering program that found a linear relationship between maximum power degradation and the total UV exposure dose for four different types of commercial crystalline Si modules. The average degradation rate for the four modules types was 0.71 % per year. The analysis showed that losses of short-circuit current were responsible for the maximum power degradation. Judging by the appearance of the nondegraded control modules, it is very doubtful that the short-circuit current losses were caused by encapsulation browning or obscuration. When we compared the quantum efficiency of a single cell in a degraded module to one from an unexposed control module, it appears that most of the degradation has occurred in the 800-1100 nm wavelength region, and not the short wavelength region.

  • A generic model for the classification of radiation emission data in electromagnetic compatibility measurement

    This paper presents a generic model for identification of Radiation energy in open area-test site (OATS) with noisy environment. This model incorporates important effects including, interdependency of direction of propagation of radiated energy, precision of transducers and noise profiles. We propose a statistical based model to measure radiated Electromagnetic Interference in OATS environment for classification of radiated emission data either being source generated or an ambient. FAM algorithm is then modified to critically categorize ambient concealed in signal data; its performance has been improved and "undefined" points in earlier investigation have been modeled. Any electronic product can well be tested for Radiated emissions against CISPR standards in OATS.

  • Crop Type Mapping Based on Sentinel-1 Backscatter Time Series

    The high revisit time of Sentinel-1 (S1) observations enables the design of crop type mapping approaches exploiting the backscatter time series observed for the different crops. The objective of this study is to propose a supervised crop classification methodology based on the temporal signature of crops. With this aim 29 dual-pol S1 observations acquired over an agricultural area of Spain, where ground truth was available, were processed. The classification approach was based on the temporal signatures obtained for each polarization channel (VH, VV and the cross-pol ratio) for the different crops. Highest accuracies were obtained when fields were assigned to the class that minimized the RMSE, with an overall accuracy of 79% and best results for rapeseed, sunflower, alfalfa and barley.

  • Compensating for shielded enclosure effects on radiated emissions measurements

    This paper compares the differences in open area test site (OATS) derived antenna factors to those derived for a specific location of a shielded enclosure as well as the resultant E-field of a simulated-equipment under test (S-EUT) using each. It will also show that using position specific shielded enclosure derived antenna factors not only produces excellent agreement on the resultant E-field for measurements made in two enclosures, but also to the predicted E-field of the S-EUT.
