Abstract

The paper discusses the theoretical analysis and the experimental work done to describe the cause of intermodulation distortion in class C transistorized amplifiers. A mathematical basis for the intermodulation was derived using a single frequency input and a second frequency introduced into the output of the amplifier. It was followed by experimental work performed to justify the theory. These experiments used both pulsed and sinusoidal drives as amplifier inputs. Also, a feedback method along with the transistor's operating point was shown to reduce the intermodulation distortion produced by the amplifier. Finally, a short discussion on the results and some of the applications of this research to V.H.F. amplifiers was presented.
