    Abstract

    Behavioral models are intended as high level mathematical descriptions which require less computational effort to simulate behavior compared to physical or circuit level equivalent models. When designed and dimensioned properly they are well suited to concise characterization of power amplifiers under different operating conditions. In this paper we compare the relative performance of several behavioral models for modelling an asymmetric Doherty power amplifier for their use in distributed arrays.
