Free Space VSWR Method for Anechoic Chamber Electromagnetic Performance Evaluation

Author: Brian B. Tian

This paper gives a detailed account of free space Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) method. We first review the formulations and terms commonly used in this method. We then discuss errors involved in its direction determination of extraneous signals, contrasting them among plane wave, spherical wave and specular reflection. We highlight issues relating to its application in anechoic chamber electromagnetic performance. Also discussed is the practice of data processing through analyzing a measured VSWR pattern.
