I am doing pre-compliance EMC testing on an electric generator. The standard I am reading explains how to test devices that get power from mains, but it doesn't explain the testing procedure for a power supply/generator. My idea is to put a constant load on the generator and use a current probe hooked up to a spectrum analyzer to see if there are any noteworthy peaks in frequency.
- Would using a constant load/current probe be sufficient for testing all frequencies?
- Is there a need for a LISN when testing a generator for conducted emissions?
- Are there any online sources for procedural EMC testing of generators/power supplies? (I have googled many iterations to no avail.)
