ESTIMATION OF NONLINEAR DISTORTION OF SIGNAL CAUSED BY ELECTRON AMPLIFIER
St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation, Department of Information Network Technologies; Professor
Abstract. Nonlinear distortion of signal introduced by electron amplifier is investigated theoretically. Nonlinear distortion factor is calculated for a harmonic input signal. For a specified volt-ampere characteristic, the effect of operation point position on the nonlinear distortion level is analyzed.
Keywords: signal amplification, operation point, nonlinear distortion.
