Constant-Current Operation of Power Amplifiers
A new technique of class A amplifier operation is described wherein change of plate current with signal is negligible. Performance is not impaired by poor power-supply regulation or use of cathode bias. A new amplifier is discussed, featuring operation into the grid-current region (class A2) and provision for automatic self-balancing of power tubes.
