Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) is a datadriven technique for extraction of oscillatory components from data. Although it has been introduced over 15 years ago, its mathematical foundations are still missing which also implies lack of objective metrics for decomposed set evaluation. Currently, the most common technique for assessing results of EMD is their visual inspection, which is very subjective. This article provides objective measures for validating EMD output, which are derived from

Three proposed metrics refer to component's idealised characteristics, i.e. its significant instantaneous frequency and the ability to extract amplitude-and frequency-modulated parts. Possible application of these metrics is presented on two examples.
