This paper presents an approach to nonlinear impedance measurement exploiting an oscilloscope and Möbius transformation. Proposed system consists of a linear 4-port network and an oscilloscope. One of the port is excited by a high power source. The power is delivered to the second port, which is loaded with a DUT. Another set of two ports are used to observe a voltage set. This voltage set gives the impedance of the DUT through Möbius transformation. We formulated measurability M of the system, and derived the condition that M becomes constant for any DUT. To meet the condition, we propose a linear 4-port network consisting of a quarter-wavelength transmission line and resistors. We confirm the validity and utility of the proposed system by measuring the impedance of incandescent bulbs and an RF diode rectifier.
