Paper Abstract

Digital beamforming (DBF) transmitting multibeam planar array antenna with nonlinear behaviors of solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) is discussed. This paper investigates the intermodulation beams produced by the nonlinearity characteristics of the SSPA with multiple carrier components. The Shimbo model is simplified to describe the nonlinear behaviors of SSPA. The optimal SSPA input back-off (IBO) point which is given the desired the carrier and the intermodulatin ratio (C/IM) is simulated. And the tradeoffs between linearity and efficiency of the power amplifier which influence this IBO is also discussed, helping to selecting suitable SSPA device and reducing the dc power consumption in satellite array antenna system.
