    Hi,

    I'm reading an article about a class E power amplifier, with an output series resonant circuit, which shows high impedance to harmonics.

    It was said there that the harmonic voltages decrease as 1/n^2, which is expected because the amplifier has a continuous collector voltage waveform.

    Why is it that having a continuous collector voltage waveform causes a 1/n^2 decrease in harmonic voltages?

    Thanks!
