An equivalent two terminal model based on the Thevenin equivalents describes the common mode (CM) currents on the input and output side of two widely used types of dc-to-dc power converters - buck and boost. Thus, it describes a nonlinear circuit by a linear equivalent circuit. The maximized spectrum of the CM currents is extracted for converters with stochastic signals using a novel characterization procedure. The extracted Thevenin model is used in co-simulation combined with a full-wave electromagnetic solver to predict the radiated emissions from the system consisting of the shielded DC-DC converters with attached cables and a DC brushless motor as load. The results using the terminal model agree well with the measurements providing that the actual CM loads are within the range of CM loads used while obtaining the Thevenin equivalent circuit.
