ENEL 613 - Nonlinear Microwave Engineering - Winter 2019

Theory, design and optimization of RF power amplification systems for wireless and satellite communication applications. A detailed treatment of linear and non-linear characterization and modelling of amplifiers/transmitters from device to system level perspective. Theory of operation as well as design techniques of linear amplifiers (class A, AB, B, C), switching mode amplifiers (class E, D and F) and balanced amplifiers are presented. Linearization and power efficiency enhancements techniques of power amplifiers/transmitters are also covered.
