Experimental studies show that the PA behavior variations can be effectively tracked using a small number of ``transformed'' coefficients, even with large deviations in its output characteristics. Based on this discovery, to avoid reextracting all the original coefficients every time when the operating condition changes, we propose to conduct a one-time off-line pretraining stage to extract the common features of PA behaviors under different operating conditions first. The online model adaptation process will then only need to identify a small number of transformed coefficients, which can result in a drastic reduction in the computational complexity of the model adaptation process. The proposed solution is validated by experimental results considering varying signal bandwidth and output power levels on a high-efficiency gallium-nitride Doherty PA, where the computational complexity is significantly reduced and the system performance is not compromised.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Journal:||IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques||Volume:||69||Issue:||3||Start page:||1780||End page:||1790||Copyright (published version):||2020 IEEE||Keywords:||Adaption models; Feature extraction; Computational modeling; Principal component analysis; Computational complexity; Radio frequency; Data models||DOI:||10.1109/tmtt.2020.3039788||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0018-9480||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
