3.3. Design equations for finite QL
When QL (defined as 2πfL2/R) decreases, the above equations progressively produce less accurate results.
In some cases, Dr. Raab’s equations (2) have been represented in tabular form with the output power, C1 and C2 as function of QL.
Even if QL is a free-choice design variable from the theory, it must satisfy the condition QL ≥ 1.7879; when QL = ∞ we may recognize the results already found.
In (4) Dr. Sokal found compact design equations representing the data shown in Table 1 using polynomial functions in QL.
