Modulation
• Modulation is the process of impressing a low-frequency intelligence signal onto a higher-frequency carrier signal.
• The low-frequency intelligence signal
• Intelligence
• Modulating Signal
• Information Signal
• Audio Signal
• The high-frequency carrier signal
• Three Characteristics of Signal
• Amplitude
• Frequency
• Phase

AM Fundamentals
• Lower-Side Frequency (fc – fi)
• Carrier Frequency (fc)
• Upper-Side Frequency (fc + fi)

ELC 222

Example 2-1
• A1.4 MHz carrier is modulated by a music signal that has frequency components from 20 Hz to 10 kHz. Determine the range of frequencies generated for the upper and lower sidebands.

ELC 222

Example 2-2
• Determine the %m for the following conditions for an unmodulated carrier of 80V peak-to-peak (p-p).

ELC 222

Example 2-3
• Determine the maximum sideband power if the carrier output is 1 kW and calculate the total maximum transmitted power.

ELC 222

Example 2-4
• A 500-W carrier is to be modulated to a 90 percent level. Determine the total transmitted power.

ELC 222

Example 2-5
• An AM broadcast station operates at its maximum allowed total output of 50 kW and 95 percent modulation. How much of its transmitted power is intelligence?

ELC 222

Example 2-6
• The antena current of an AM transmitter is 12A when unmodulated but increases to 13A when modulated. Calculate %m.

ELC 222

Example 2-7
• An intelligence signal is amplified by a 70% efficient amplifier before being combined with a 10-kW carrier to generate the AM signal. If you want to operate at 100% modulation, what is the dc input power to the final intelligence amplifier?

ELC 222

Example 2-8
• A transmitter with a 10-kW carrier transmits 11.2 kW when modulated with a single sine wave. Calculate the modulation index. If the carrier is simultaneously modulated with another sine wave at 50% modulation, calculate the total transmitted power.

Mathematical Representation of Sine Wave
• v = Vp sin(t + )
• Where v = instantaneous value
• Vp = peak value
•  = angular velocity = 2f
•  = phase angle
• AM: Amplitude Modulation
• FM: Frequency Modulation
• PM: Phase Modulation
