This paper deals with the approximate worst-case test method for testing the insertion loss of the EMI filters. The systems with 0.1 ÃŽÂ© and 100 ÃŽÂ© impedances are usually used for this testing. These systems are required by the international CISPR 17 standard. The main disadvantage of this system is the use of two impedance transformers. Especially the impedance transformer with 0.1 ÃŽÂ© output impedance is not easy to be produced. These transformers have usually narrow bandwidth. This paper discusses the alternative system with 1 ÃŽÂ© and 100 ÃŽÂ© impedances. The performance of these systems was tested on several filtersÃ¢Â€Â™ models and the obtained data are depicted, too. The performance comparison of several filters in several systems is also included. The performance of alternate worst-case system is discussed in the conclusion
