Power Added Efficiency (PAE) Calculator

This calculator calculates the Power Added Efficiency (PAE) of an Amplifier. Enter the input power, output power and the DC power supplied to the amplifier to calculate the efficiency.
  • Amplifier Power Input (RFin)
  • Amplifier Power output (RFout)
  • DC Input Power (RFDC) = VDC x IDC‚Äč
  • Calculate Reset


  • Power added Efficiency (PAE)


RFin = Amplifier input power

RFout = Amplifier output power

RFDC = Amplifier DC power input - This can be calculated as follows VDC x IDC

PAE = Power-added efficiency of the amplifier
