In this paper1 the optimum design of a class E power amplifier with resonant tank being symmetrically driven by two class E circuits is studied. The optimally designed symmetrical class E circuit has extremely low harmonic distortion, and the load matching network (if required) is non-critical and can be designed with ease. Practical steady-state design equations are derived and graphically presented. Experimental circuits are constructed for distortion evaluation.
