Abstract [sv]

Effektförstärkare för radiofrekvensapplikationer utgör fortfarande ett av de största problemen i trådlösa kommunikationssystem. Detta beror på att dessa förstärkare är ickelinjära, har låg energieffektivitet och ger mycket distortioner. Bättre verktyg för att förstå och korrigera dessa beteenden är nödvändiga. Ett sådant verktyg är beteendemodellering. En beteendemodell kanses som en svart låda med insignal(er) och utsignal(er). In detta fall är dessasignaler samplade basbandssignaler och den svarta lådan är en matematisk relation mellan en insignal och en utsignal.

Avhandlingen behandlar några krav för beteendemodellering av nämnda system genom att presentera metoder för utvärdering och förbättring av modellernas prestanda. Detta åstadkoms genom att betrakta ett frekvensviktat felkriterium.

Ett högpresterande mätsystem är också nödvändigt för experimenten. Prestandan hos det tillgängliga systemet jämförs med prestandan hos ett allmänt erkänt mätsystem, en s.k. storsignalsnätverksanalysator, genom att betrakta prestandan hos beteendemodellerna som extraheras och validerasmed data från respektive mätsystem. Resultatet visar att det existerande mätsystemet har god prestanda.

Ett stort problem vid beteendemodellering är att kunna sampla med tillräckligt hög hastighet. Genom att använda Zhu-Franks generaliserade samplingsteorem vid beteendemodellering kan en del av detta problem undvikas. Teoremet medför att man kan sampla med en väsentligt lägre samlingsfrekvens än vad Nyquistteoremet säger. Modeller extraheras och prestandanutvärderas genom att använda kriteriet normalized mean square error (NMSE).

För stabil prediktion och korrektion av utsignalen måste robustheten hos de använda modellerna verifieras. En sådan studie som berör robustheten mot variationer i lastimpedansen har genomförts. Prestandan på direkta modeller försämras med 7 dB mätt som adjacent channel error power ratio (ACEPR). Prestanda på inversmodellen, implementerad som digital predistortion, försämras med upp till 13 dB mätt som adjacent channel power ratio(ACPR).

Abstract [en]

Radio frequency (RF) power amplifiers (PA) are still the most troublesome part of a wireless system due to their inherent nonlinearity, low powerefficiency and high distortions. Better tools are needed to understand and correct the undesirable behavior. Some of these tools are behavioral models. A behavioral model is often thought of as a black box with some inputs and some outputs. In the case here these inputs are sampled signals which means that the modeling amounts to finding a mathematical relationship between the input signal(s) and the output signal(s).

This thesis considers some requirements for behavioral modeling of said systems by presenting methods for general performance evaluation and improvement by considering a frequency weighted error criterion. A high performance measurement system is also needed. The performance of the available system is compared to the performance of a well recognized system, the large signal network analyzer (LSNA). The results show that the existing measurement system can extract behavioral models with the same performance as the LSNA and can give lower performance validation errors.

Still the need for higher bandwidths drives the measurement systems to the limits, especially the digital parts. By utilizing the so called Zhu-Frank generalized sampling theorem, behavioral modeling of a PA is done by using data acquired at a sampling rate lower than the Nyquist rate. Models of a PA are extracted and the performance is evaluated using the normalized mean square error (NMSE) criterion. For prediction and correction of the output signals the stability of the models regarding changes must be investigated. One such study considering controlled variations on the output load of the PA is done and both the predictive and corrective capabilities of the models are evaluated. The predictive capability gets up to 7 dB worse measured as adjacent channel error power ratio (ACEPR) and the corrective, as digital predistortion, gets up to 13 dB worse measured as adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR).

Abstract [en]

This paper presents an investigation of poweramplifier behavioural model performance sensitivity to in-bandreflections. The measurement system and model extractionprocess is presented together with the results and an analysis ofthe effect of parameter variations in a digitally predistortedsystem. A load-pull system is used together with a digitalbaseband model extraction system to identify the impact onmodelling performance. The results show that the modelperformance varies greatly with in-band reflection magnitudeand phase on the amplifier output. It is also shown that a digitalpredistortion based on a model extracted at matched conditions,where it gives an excellent improvement of 20 dB in adjacentchannel leakage ratio (ACLR), gives a poor improvement of 7 dBfor miss-matched conditions with as low reflections as Γ=0.2(return loss 14 dB). This indicates that in-band reflections needto be considered and adaptive predistortion used also for lowVSWR system like base-stations for telecommunication.

Abstract [en]

Sideband asymmetries in distortion products are created due to electrical and thermal memory effects and this can be difficult to correct for in a digital predistortion algorithm. In this study, sideband asymmetries in third-order intermodulation distortion products before and after digital predistortion were investigated using 2-tone and 2-carrier WCDMA signals. The parallel Hammerstein (PH) model was used in the digital predistortion algorithm. The sign of the asymmetries before correction were found to depend on power level. Memoryless correction lead to an increase in asymmetries for some power ranges whereas using a PH model of order 13 with only one order of memory length lead to good correction over a large power range.

2009 (engelsk)Inngår i: 2009 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium, Boston: IEEE MTT , 2009, s. 1365-1368Konferansepaper, Publicerat paper (Fagfellevurdert)
Abstract [en]

In this paper a radio frequency power amplifier is measured and characterized by the use of undersampling based on the generalized Zhu-Frank sampling theorem. A test system has been designed allowing the bandwidth of the stimuli signal to be 100 MHz in the characterization process. That would not be possible with any vector signal analyzer on the market. One of the more challenging problem within the proposed concept is the model validation process. Here, two different techniques for model validation are proposed, the multitone and the spectrum scan validation methods.
