n this letter, the global stability analysis of an L-band push-pull power amplifier is presented. The analysis is carried out for the amplifier operating in different modes, such as Class AB, Class B, and Class E/F, considering variations in the bias voltages, the input power and the input frequency. After determination of the oscillation mode, three different stabilization techniques are applied and compared: feedback resistors, neutralization capacitors, and odd-mode stabilization resistor. The element values of each stabilization network, ensuring a stable behavior for all the operating conditions, are calculated with a bifurcation-analysis technique. Good agreement is found between measured and simulated results.
