A-003-02: PEP, PEP relative to average power, PEP relative to voltage across load
The power supplied to the antenna transmission line by a transmitter during an RF cycle at the highest crest of the modulation envelope is known as:
To compute one of the following, multiply the peak-envelope voltage by 0.707 to obtain the RMS value, square the result and divide by the load resistance. Which is the correct answer?
Peak-Envelope Power (PEP) for SSB transmission is:
Peak-Envelope Voltage (PEV) multiplied by 0.707, squared and divided by the load resistance
peak-voltage multiplied by peak current
equal to the rms power
a hypothetical measurement
The formula to be used to calculate the power output of a transmitter into a resistor load using a voltmeter is:
P = E^2/R
P = EI/R
P = EI cos 0
P = IR
How is the output Peak-Envelope Power of a transmitter calculated, if an oscilloscope is used to measure the Peak-Envelope Voltage across a dummy resistive load?
PEP = Peak-Envelope Power
PEV = Peak-Envelope Voltage
Vp = peak-voltage
RL = load resistance
PEP = [(0.707 PEV)(0.707 PEV)] / RL
PEP = [(Vp)(Vp)] / (RL)
PEP = (Vp)(Vp)(RL)
PEP = [(1.414 PEV)(1.414 PEV)] / RL
What is the output PEP from a transmitter if an oscilloscope measures 200 volts peak-to-peak across a 50-ohm dummy load connected to the transmitter output?
What is the output PEP from a transmitter if an oscilloscope measures 500 volts peak-to-peak across a 50-ohm dummy load connected to the transmitter output?
What is the output PEP of an unmodulated carrier transmitter if a wattmeter connected to the transmitter output indicates an average reading of 1060 watts?
What is the output PEP from a transmitter, if an oscilloscope measures 400 volts peak-to-peak across a 50 ohm dummy load connected to the transmitter output?
What is the output PEP from a transmitter, if an oscilloscope measures 800 volts peak-to-peak across a 50 ohm dummy load connected to the transmitter output?
An oscilloscope measures 500 volts peak-to-peak across a 50 ohm dummy load connected to the transmitter output during unmodulated carrier conditions. What would an average-reading power meter indicate under the same transmitter conditions?
