These amplifiers are increasingly more popular because differential signals are insensitive to ground noise and naturally reduce even harmonic distortion while doubling signal swing.
the output voltage of the inverter device it is generated as an odd function, and thus, the even harmonics are null (Ionescu et al.
As shown in Figs 14 and 17, there is the following dependence: when odd harmonics are growing, even harmonics are decreasing.
The comparison of the results, obtained for constant and variable load moments, shows the same trend of harmonics variation: odd harmonics are increasing, while even harmonics are decreasing.
1 [micro]rad) value calculated earlier because there are some other higher order even harmonics in the data as well.
The device may also be used as a balanced voltage source, which will only have spurious signals at even harmonics of the AC frequency signal.
