A New approach for distributed amplifier design

Yılmaz, İsmail Gökhan
In this thesis work, a new distributed amplifier topology is discussed and applied to three different cases. The topology is based on dividing the frequency spectrum into channels and amplifying afterwards. The channelized and amplified signals are then combined at the output for broadband amplification. This topology is used in the design of a three channel 0.1-1 GHz amplifier with a gain of 14.5±0.6 dB. The design is fabricated, and then the measured and simulated results are compared. A second 0.1-1 GHz amplifier with 21±1 dB is designed in simulation environment with five channels. This five channel amplifier is fabricated and measured results are compared with the simulated ones. A 1-6 GHz three channel amplifier is also designed with a gain of 10.5±0.5 dB. Application of the proposed topology to three different designs shows promising results for future amplifier designs.


Innovative approaches in Doherty amplifier design for higher efficiency and wider frequency bandwidth
Şahan, Necip; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
In the first phase of this thesis, the design optimizations of the bias adapted Doherty power (BA-DPA) and asymmetric Doherty power amplifier (ADPA) are presented for maximum efficiency criteria in the high power region. BA-DPA is analyzed by a novel approach in terms of efficiency. The ideal efficiency characteristics of BA-DPA with different bias adaptation schemes are illustrated. The maximum conduction angle and periphery requirement of the class-C biased peaking power amplifier (PPA) to realize fully l...

A method of calculating the receptances of a non-proportionally damped structure from the undamped modal data and the damping matrix of the system is presented. The method developed is an exact method. It gives exact results when exact undamped receptances are employed in the computation. Inaccuracies are due to the truncations made in the calculation of undamped receptances. Numerical examples, demonstrating the accuracy and speed of the method when truncated receptance series are used are also presented. ...
Design, fabrication and characterization of novel metamaterials in microwave and terahertz regions : multi-band, frequency-tunable and miniaturized structures
Ekmekçi, Evren; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
This dissertation is focused on the design, fabrication, and characterization of novel metamaterials in microwave and terahertz regions with the following outcomes: A planar µ-negative metamaterial structure, called double-sided SRR (DSRR), is proposed in the first part of this study. DSRR combines the features of a conventional split ring resonator (SRR) and a broadside-coupled SRR (BC-SRR) to obtain much better miniaturization at microwave frequencies for a given physical cell size. In addition to DSRR, d...
Novel SIE Implementations for Efficient and Accurate Electromagnetic Simulations of Zero-index Materials
Ibili, H.; Koyaz, Y.; Ozmu, U.; Karaosmanoglu, B.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-01-01)
We present novel surface-integral-equation formulations for efficient and accurate iterative solutions of electromagnetic problems involving zero-index (ZI) and near-zero-index (NZI) materials. When applied to materials with small permittivity and/or permeability values, conventional implementations employing traditional formulations tend to become inefficient, inaccurate, or both. Such numerical issues arise mainly due to low-frequency breakdowns related to inner problems, as well as due to deteriorating b...
Using fuzzy Petri nets for static analysis of rule-bases
Bostan-Korpeoglu, B; Yazıcı, Adnan (2004-01-01)
We use a Fuzzy Petri Net (FPN) structure to represent knowledge and model the behavior in our intelligent object-oriented database environment, which integrates fuzzy, active and deductive rules with database objects. However, the behavior of a system can be unpredictable due to the rules triggering or untriggering each other (non-termination). Intermediate and final database states may also differ according to the order of rule executions (non-confluence). In order to foresee and solve problematic behavior...
