 The International Special Committee on Radio Interference (CISPR) (CISPR 16-1-4) measured the site voltage standing wave ratio (SVSWR) to determine the site imperfections of a radiated emission measurement site above 1 GHz. However, the technical background of the SVSWR measurement parameters is not included in this standard. In this paper, we first propose a simple propagation model to evaluate the relation between the SVSWR parameters and the measurement values. The calculated SVSWR values of the total displacement defined in CISPR 16-1-4 (0.4 m) were almost the same as those obtained when the transmitting antenna was moved up to 2.0 m from the reference point. In addition, the SVSWR values obtained with a 50 MHz frequency resolution, as defined in CISPR 16-1-4 were almost the same as those values obtained with a 1 MHz resolution. From these results, we confirmed that the CISPR measurement parameters are reasonable and effective.
