X-Band Push-Push Oscillator Simulation and Measurement

X-Band Push-Push Oscillator Simulation and Measurement, authored by Kenneth Puglia, is a comprehensive eBook that explores the push-push oscillator configuration via harmonic balance (HB) computer simulation and test measurement. The unique operation of the push-push oscillator configuration is explored using HB simulation of spectral content and time-domain voltage waveforms. Dynamic load lines are investigated and utilized to explore peak signal excursion and degree of nonlinearity. Predictions of power output, phase noise, voltage control, and harmonic content are compared with measured data.
