This is precisely what transducer gain tells us. Furthermore, transducer gain is almost always a defined quantity, because it requires only that the source and output powers be finite, and real sources always have finite available power. Thus, the concept is handy in nonlinear circuits where, as our earlier discussion of large-signal S parameters illustrated, it is often impossible to define input and output impedances or reflection coefficients. Other gain definitions are often useless because they do not tell the engineer what he wants to know, or occasionally result in meaningless or undefined quantities.

This situation arises often in the modeling of solid-state devices, in which C/V or G/V characteristics are often the easier ones to measure. In this case, we must find the Taylorseries expansions of the I/V or Q/V characteristics from a series expansion of the C/V or G/V characteristic. 26) … gn = ζn – 1 ⁄ n We can do the same with the Taylor-series expansion of the Q/V characteristic and the expansion of the C/V characteristic. 29) Having said all this, we should note that determining the g n or Cn coefficients from an expansion of the G(V) or C(V) function is not always practical.

3 NONLINEAR PHENOMENA The examination of new frequencies generated in nonlinear circuits does not tell the whole story of nonlinear effects, especially the effects of nonlinearities on microwave systems. Many types of nonlinear phenomena have been defined; the foregoing power series techniques can show how these arise from the nonlinearities in individual components or circuit elements. The phenomena described in this section are often considered to be entirely different; we shall see, however, that they are simply manifestations of the same nonlinearities.
