The load network consists of a parallel inductance L, a parallel capacitance C, a series [L.sub.0][C.sub.0] resonant circuit tuned at the fundamental frequency [[omega].sub.0] = 1/[square root of ([L.sub.0][C.sub.0])] and a load R.
The HP MDS circuit page setup for the optimization of the previously described parallel resonant circuit is shown in Appendix C.
Figure 3 shows a simplified parallel resonant circuit oscillator.
It is known that the current in the resonant circuit exceeds the current coming from the power source [12].
A new resonant circuit is created by the switched capacitors Cm1 Cm2 and LLk1 and Cs1.
Furthermore, the zero-voltage-switching function furnished by resonant circuit can effectively reduce the high-frequency switching loss and tackle the heat dissipation problem.
This metasurface can be modeled as a parallel LC resonant circuit, as shown in Fig.
New machines use metal oxide silicon, field-effect transistors (MOSFET), often associated with parallel resonant circuit. The constant voltage version generators use insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBT) designed to power about 2,000 kW with frequency ranges of 100-600 kHz.
The defected ground structure can be modeled by a parallel LC resonant circuit. The parameter extraction procedure was described in [6].
Therefore, the load resonant circuit can be analyzed using the fundamental component approximation.
Using a resonant circuit means large signal levels even at big gaps, so that the sensor can be housed behind a thick plastic housing.
