The power amplifier supplies the required operating power to the implanted devices. Zero voltage switching (ZVS) operation of class-E power amplifier leads to convert DC voltage to AC with high efficiency and workings frequency. Frequency has a great function in powering most of the biomedical implanted devices. Frequency shift caused by inductors and capacitors used in the circuit can cause load variation or changing in mutual displacement or they may lead to instability and data loss of the implanted devices. So switching-mode frequency control is the key problem in the biomedical device powering system. This paper focused on the design of a frequency controlled power amplifier to improve the controller’s efficiency in terms of speed and better results. The objective of this work is to control the operating frequency. Feedback control method is used by using proportional integral derivative controller (PID), proportional integral (PI) and voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) to reduce the phase shift and settling time. The Bode plot and Nyquist stability criterion analyses show that the developed power amplifier frequency controller is stable and perform well to improve the controller efficiency.
