Abstract

In this paper, the basic quadratic form of the poly-harmonic distortion model is first presented and this is then extended to provide a new, modified quadratic poly-harmonic distortion model. Comparisons between the X-parameter model, the basic quadratic poly-harmonic distortion model, and the modified version are provided. Both simulation and experimental test results show that the new modified model provides significant improvements in accuracy, not only for the fundamental frequency, but also for DC. Work on the optimization of the model is also presented, providing further improvements in both the model extraction time and the file size.
