The conventional formula for power output is accurate when even harmonics only are present but it does not give the true power output if odd harmonics are present. It is shown that the correction factor to be applied is the square of one plus or minus the ratio of the third harmonic amplitude to that of the fundamental. Output systems are discussed in which… CONTINUE READING
