A method to estimate the source location based on the MUSIC algorithm is proposed and is applied to the electromagnetic field emitted by a microwave oven of transformer-type. Since the frequency, the phase and the amplitude of leakage field emitted by microwave oven change with time, a detection method using the periodicity of the field is also proposed to obtain the phase distribution. Experimental results of the estimation of the source location are shown by using the proposed method.
