A Class E power amplifier offers high efficiency approaching 100% for an ideal case. A new wide bandwidth Class E power amplifier design has been introduced combining a parallel-circuit load network with reactance compensation technique and high-order harmonic suppression circuit. The proposed topology has been discussed based on theory and its experimental verification. A hardware prototype was designed and built, and measurement results showed drain efficiency of 70% and second harmonic rejection of more than 84 dBc (as well as higher harmonics), and output power level more than 6.5 W with ±0.5 dB power flatness, across very high frequency (VHF) band (136-174 MHz). The performance achieved demonstrated highest harmonic suppression across wide bandwidth for VHF range according to authors' knowledge. Simulations of power performance (i.e. efficiency and output power) were verified by measurements, and good agreements were obtained.
