This paper presents analysis and identification method of Wiener-Hammerstein system to characterize a nonlinear RF transmitter in fundamental frequency zone. A two-tone signal is used to analyze and identify a Wiener-Hammerstein model. A RF signal is converted to baseband-equivalent complex signal, and Wiener-Hammerstein model is considered to have a baseband equivalent complex polynomial and linear filters. For a two-tone input signal, closed form descriptions of the output signal in the time domain and frequency domain are developed using a newly suggested nonlinearly modulated two-tone phasors (NMTP). The relationship between frequency terms of input and output signals in RF transmitters are represented with linear matrix-vector equation based on NMTP analysis. An advantage of the proposed method is its simplicity using closed form analysis and linear approximation. In addition, we can model a wideband system with relatively narrowband measurements by sweeping two-tone signal. The prediction of spectral regrowth and the predistortion performance for WiBro 1FA signal demonstrate the validity of the proposed approach in identifying the nonlinear RF transmitters.
