Consider the two-port network of CE amplifier. RS is the source resistance and ZL is the load impedance. The h-parameters are assumed to be constant over the operating range. The ac equivalent circuit is shown in fig. 2. (Phasor notations are used assuming sinusoidal voltage input). The quantities of interest are the current gain, input impedance, voltage gain, and output impedance.

Current Gain or Current Amplification (Ai)

For transistor amplifier, the current gain Ais defined as the ratio of output current to input current,i.e,

A=IL /I= -I/ I1

From the circuit of Fig 1.5

I2= hI1 + hoV2

Substituting V= ILZ=  -I2ZL

            I2= hI1- I2ZL ho

            I2 + I2ZL ho = hI1    

 
               
I2( 1+ ZL ho) = hI1

                A=  -I/ I1 = - hf / ( 1+ ZL ho)

            Therefore,

            Ai = - hf / ( 1+ ZL ho)

Input Impedance (Zi)

In the circuit of Fig 1.5, Ris the signal source resistance .The impedance seen when looking into the amplifier terminals (1,1) is the amplifier input impedance  Zi,

Zi = V1/I1

From the input circuit of Fig   V1 = hI1 + hrV2

Zi = ( hI1 + hrV2) / I1

     = h+ hr V2 / I1

Substituting

V2 = -IZ= A1I1ZL

 Zi = h+ hr A1I1ZL / I1

     = h+ hr A1ZL

Substituting for Ai

Zi = h- hf hr ZL / (1+ hoZL)

    = h- hf hr ZL / ZL(1/ZL+ ho)

Taking the Load admittance as YL =1/ ZL

Zi  = h- hf hr  / (YL + ho)
 

Voltage Gain or Voltage Gain Amplification Factor(Av)

The ratio of output voltage Vto input voltage Vgive the voltage gain of the transistor i.e,

Av = V2 / V1

Substituting

            V2 = -IZ= A1I1ZL

            A= A1I1ZL / V1 =  AiZL / Zi

Output Admittance (Yo)

Yo is obtained by setting VS to zero, ZL to infinity and by driving the output terminals from a generator V2. If the current is I2 then Yo= I2/V2 with VS=0 and RL= ∞.

From the circuit of fig 1.5

I2= hI1 + hoV2

Dividing by V2,

I/ V2 = hI1/V2 + ho

With V2= 0, by KVL in input circuit,

RSI1 + hI1 + hrV= 0

(RS + hi) I1 + hrV= 0

Hence,     I/ V2 = -h/ (RS + hi)

                            = h(-hr/( RS + hi)+ho

Yo= ho- hhr/( RS + hi)

The output admittance is a function of source resistance. If the source impedance is resistive then Yis real.

Voltage Amplification Factor(Avs) is taking into account the resistance (Rs) of the source.

Fig. 5.6 Thevenin’s Equivalent Input Circuit

This overall voltage gain Avs is given by

            Avs = V/ VS = V2V/ V1VS = Av V1/ VS

From the equivalent input circuit using Thevenin’s equivalent for the source shown in Fig. 5.6,

V1 = VZ/ (Zi + RS)

V/ VS = Z/ ( Zi + RS)

Then,               Avs =  Av Z/ ( Zi + RS)

Substituting     A= AiZL / Zi

                        Avs =  AiZL / ( Zi + RS)

                        Avs = AiZL RS / ( Zi + RS) RS

                        Avs = AisZ/  RS

Fig. 1.7  Norton’s Equivalent Input Circuit

The modified input circuit using Norton’s equivalent circuit for the calculation of Ais is shown in Fig. 1.7

Overall Current Gain, Ais = -I/ IS = - I2I/I1 IS = Ai I1/IS

From Fig. 1.7                          I1= IS R/ (RS + Zi)

                                    I/ IS = R/ (RS + Zi)

and hence,                   Ais = Ai R/ (RS + Zi)

 

Operating Power Gain (AP)

The operating power gain Aof the transistor is defined as

A= P2 / P1 = -V2 I2 / V1 I1 = AvA= Ai AiZL/ Zi

A= Ai2(ZL/ Zi)
