    A filter has been designed to reduce conducted and radiated emission generated by a frequency converter. The frequency converter, cables and motor were modelled in order to make a good estimation of the radiated emission. A single stage output filter was designed making use of feedthrough apacitors and a nano-crystalline iron particles common mode choke. This choke has a high saturation level, comparable to a conventional iron inductor, and a high permeability, compared to conventional ferrite, i.e. combining the best of both materials. Measurements have shown that such a filter is very effective.
