Operating power gain

The operating power gain, text_wrap_inline2925, is defined as the ratio of the power delivered to the load text_wrap_inline2891 to the power input to the amplifier text_wrap_inline2889


For a given set of S-parameters, text_wrap_inline2925 depends only on text_wrap_inline2885. Hence text_wrap_inline2925 is very useful for investigating the effect of the load on the amplifier power gain.
