In modern mobile wireless communication, Base Stations (BS) are the most important equipment to build up the mobile network. One of the key elements in BS is the RF filter, which plays a key role to secure the coverage and reliability of the BS. Especially, at Transmitter (Tx) side, the filter must have a high capability to handle the power sent from Power Amplifier (PA) to antenna in any circumstances to ensure the coverage demand. Otherwise, the breakdown will be encountered, setting the power flow in the BS system in an abnormal manner that, finally can lead to the shut down of BS or destroy the system permanently. In this project, three methods using two simulation tools to predict the power handling capability of the RF/microwave resonator which is the elementary component in the BS’s filter are proposed. Power handling tests of selected configurations corresponding to the simulations are implemented as well. In the next stage, the results from the prediction and measurement are compared. Finally, the conclusions of correlation between the prediction and measurement of microwave resonator power handling will be derived.
