In this paper a new goodness measure for behavioral complex envelope power amplifier models is defined in the frequency domain. The measure can be calculated for any input signal using the same formulas, which makes it general and easy to use. The results will however be dependent on the input signal. The total model error, or normalized mean-square error, for power amplifier models are normally dominated by the in-band error, often mainly caused by the linear distortion. The new measure is aimed at capturing the nonlinear modeling performance of the amplifier model. This is of interest since it is most often the nonlinear, rather than the linear, distortion that causes most harm in real-life power amplifier applications.
