The triplexer, which acts like filters for the respective harmonic components, separates the harmonic components from the output generated by the DUT. The subsequent filters at the output of the triplexer further improve the rejection of the out-of-band frequency components. The respective load-tuners for harmonic components f0 , 2f0 , and 3f0 tune the reflection environment as per specific requirements and reflect the respective a2 (f0 ), a2 (2f0 ), and a2 (3f0 ) and, in the process, synthesize the harmonically independent reflection factors by interacting with the respective components, b2 (f0 ), b2 (2f0 ) and b2 (3f0 ), of the traveling wave, b2 .

These electronic circuits can be based on either varactor or PIN diodes. The latter is more common for load-pull applications, due to the ability to handle higher power compared to varactor-based ETS. The diode-based ETS synthesize reflection coefficient by varying the impedance state of a number of PIN diodes connected in parallel and placed in a precise manner along a transmission line, an example of which is shown in Fig. 4. In such a configuration, each diode is capable of generating a continuous discontinuity as a spoke of a wheel of increasing |ΓL |, while other diodes can subsequently change the angle of ΓL discretely.

The term e13 represents the source mismatch, e12 e14 denotes the transmission tracking, and e15 indicates the error occurring in the measuring port of the VNA. The incident and reflected traveling waves at the input VNA ports are a0 and b0 , whereas the actual incident and reflected traveling waves at the input ports of DUT are represented by a1 and b1 , respectively. The VNA measures the uncorrected reflection coefficient, ΓinU , as given in Eq. 6) 40 2 Passive Load-Pull Systems Fig. 9 Signal flow error model for the output port incorporating the imperfections contributed by directional coupler, power meter and network analyzer [26], © IEEE 1984 The quantity of interest is, however, the input reflection coefficient, Γin , expressed in Eq.
