The waveforms depicted in Figure are valid only at low frequencies, where sinusoidal waveforms can be obtained in practical circuits and the base and collector currents are in phase. Figure Waveforms in the base circuit of the Class C amplifier. Vb can be calculated knowing Ib and the input impedance. Because g1 qc decreases as qC decreases, the amplitude of the base current Ib increases as qc decreases see Equation 2. As a result, the power gain decreases as the conduction angle decreases. On the other hand, both Vb and cosqc increase as the conduction angle decreases. The peak reverse base-to-emitter voltage may exceed the emitter-base breakdown voltage usually, 4 volts for RF power BJTs and destroy the transistor or degrade its RF characteristics . Some practical considerations 1. The effects of Vsat on the performance of current-source Class C amplifiers are determined using a procedure similar to that for Class A amplifiers. The effects of RON on the performance of current-source Class C amplifiers can be estimated numerically using Equation 2. A reactive circuit load determines important decreases in output power, collector efficiency, and power output capability as in Class A or B amplifiers. Saturated Class C Amplifiers In many practical Class C amplifier applications, it is convenient to drive the transistor into saturation for a portion of each RF cycle.
