Design equations for satisfying the off-nominal operating condition [i.e., only the zero-voltage switching (ZVS) condition] of the Class-E amplifier with a linear shunt capacitance at a duty ratio D=0.5 are derived. A new parameter s (V/s), called the slope of switch voltage when the switch turns on is introduced to obtain an image of the distance from the nominal conditions. By examining off-nominal Class-E operation degree of the design freedom of the Class-E amplifier increases by one. In addition various amplifier parameters such as operating frequency, output power, and load resistance range can be set as design specifications. For example, the peak switch voltage and switch current can be taken into account in the design procedure. Examples of a design procedure of the Class-E amplifier for off-nominal operation are given. The theoretical results were verified with PSpice simulation and experiments.
