This thesis is a study of Bandwidth limitation of basestation power amplifier and its Doherty application. Fundamentally, bandwidth of a power amplifier (PA) is limited by both its input and output prematch networks and its Doherty architecture, specifically the impedance inverter between the main and auxiliary amplifier. In this study, only the output prematch network and the Doherty architecture follows are being investigated. A new proposed impedance inverter in the Doherty architecture exhibits an extended bandwidth compared to traditional quarterwave line.

Base on the loadline analysis, output impedance of the power amplifier can be represented by a loadline resistor and an output shunt capacitor. Base on this simple model, the maximum allowed bandwidth of the output impedance of the power amplifier can be estimated using the Bode-Fano method. However, since power amplifier is in fact nonlinear, harmonic balance simulation is used to loadpull the device across a broad range of frequencies. Base on the simulated large signal impedance at maximum power, the prematch circuitry can be designed. On a system level, the prematch power amplifier is used in Doherty amplifier. Two different prematch circuitries, T- section and shunt L methods are investigated along with their comparison in the Doherty architecture at both back off power and peak power condition. The last section of the thesis will be incorporating the proposed impedance inverter structure between the main and auxiliary amplifiers.

The simulated results showed the shunt L prematch topology has the least impedance dispersion across frequency. Along with the new impedance inverter structure, the 65% efficiency bandwidth improves by 50% compared to the original impedance inverter structure at back off power level.

Analytical approach to dynamic bandwidth allocation algorithms used in LRPON

With internet traffic being bursty in nature, Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation(DBA) Algorithms have always been very important for any broadband access network to utilize the available bandwidth effciently. It is no different for Passive Optical Networks(PON), which are networks based on fiber optics in the physical layer of TCP/IP stack or OSI model, which in turn increases the bandwidth in the upper layers. The work in this thesis covers general description of basic DBA Schemes and mathematical derivations that have been established in research. We introduce a Novel Survey Topology that classifes DBA schemes based on their functionality. The novel perspective of classification will be useful in determining which scheme will best suit consumer's needs. We classify DBA as Direct, Intelligent and Predictive back on its computation method and we are able to qualitatively describe their delay and throughput bounds. Also we describe a recently developed DBA Scheme, Multi-thread polling(MTP) used in LRPON and describes the different viewpoints and issues and consequently introduce a novel technique Parallel Polling that overcomes most of issues faced in MTP and that promises better delay performance for LRPON.
