A simple design for a pair of one-meter coils consists of ten turns each of #10 AWG copper wire housed in wooden boxes. Combined coil resistance is 1Ω.
Per IEC 61000-4-8 Power Frequency Magnetic Field Immunity Testing;
H=1.22 (N/D) * I A/m
For the GME coils; H=12.2 * I A/m,
When the coils are connected to the power resistor, the system impedance is 4 Ω
|Magnetic Field (A/m)||Coil Current (I)||Coil Voltage (V)|
The Helmholtz coils can also be used for magnetic field immunity testing from 30 Hz to 150 kHz. (Dotted Lines)
A signal generator is connected to a power amplifier, and the output of the amplifier is connected to the coils.
A spectrum analyzer is connected to a loop antenna that is placed in the coils. The signal generator is swept over the frequency range and the field is verified on
the spectrum analyzer display.
