Simulation of conducted interferences of class D amplifier


  • Yu. A. Onikienko National Technical University of Ukraine "Kyiv Polytechnic Institute"



electromagnetic compatibility, simulation of electromagnetic interferences, amplifier of class D


It is proposed an approximate approach to simulation of conducted interferences of amplifier of class D on a basis of equivalent circuit with elements, defining generation and propagation of conducted interferences. For calculation we use amplitude, output voltage pulse repetition cycle and duration, and also pulse rise time. Calculation results in the whole correspond to experimental data.
