The paper is concerned with an identification-based predistortion scheme for compensating nonlinearity of high power amplifiers (HPA). The identification algorithms for the Wiener-Hammerstein nonlinear model are developed in the frequency domain. By approximately modeling the nonlinear distortion part in HPA by polynomial or spline functions, and introducing linear distortion parts in the input and output of the nonlinear element, the iterative identification schemes are proposed to estimate all the uncertain parameters and to construct an inverse system for the predistortion.
