Abstract

In a transistorized push-pull amplifier, third order intermodulation distortion was effectively reduced at VHF frequencies with an output power of two watt. The non-linear distortion of the amplifier is modeled using a power series. The resulting expression is used as the basis for choosing the push-pull configuration to reduce the third order intermodulation distortion. The amplifier was built and tested, and the experimental results compare favorably with the theoretical results. The level of the third order intermodulation distortion is found to be at least 30 dB below the interfering signal level.
