peak envelope power

[′pēk ′en·və‚lōp ‚pau̇·ər]
(electronics)
Of a radio transmitter, the average power supplied to the antenna transmission line by a transmitter during one radio-frequency cycle at the highest crest of the modulation envelope, taken under conditions of normal operation.

At 25 W peak envelope power, the third-order class AB two-tone intermodular distortion figure is a low -43 dBc.
Each of the assembly's duplexers is configured using transverse electromagnetic-mode cavity filters, thereby enabling the low maximum insertion loss as well as providing high transmit power handling of 100 W CW, 250 W peak envelope power and 500 W peak instantaneous power.
The BJT has an optimum intermodulation performance near its rated power (45 W peak envelope power (PEP)) that worsens as the output power is varied above and below this level.
This article shows the typical behavior of a 900 MHz amplifier operating in the class AB mode and describes a method to create suppression of the intermodulation products to better than -30 dBc over a 40 dB dynamic range (1 mW to 10 W peak envelope power (PEP)).
