[en] On-board joint power amplification of multiple-carrier DVB-S2 signals using a single High-Power Amplifier (HPA) is an emerging configuration that aims to reduce flight hardware and weight. However, effects specific to such a scenario degrade power and spectral efficiencies with increased Adjacent Channel Interference caused by non-linear characteristic of the HPA and power efficiency loss due to the increased Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR). The paper studies signal processing techniques that counteract for both aspects enabling efficient multicarrier on board amplification. Digital pre-distortion (DPD) at the gateway and equalization (EQ) at the User Terminal are the designed avenues of attack to mitigate the non-linear effects and improve power as well as spectral efficiencies. This paper builds on our initial work in Ref.1 that performed a survey on the adaptability of various compensation techniques to the considered scenario and short-listed the most favourable ones. Preliminary performance analysis of these techniques was undertaken with Signal to Interference Ratio (SINR) as the figure of merit. The contribution of this work over Ref. 1 includes : (a) a full DVB-S2 chain is simulated with the chosen techniques with Total Degradation (TD) as the figure of merit and (b) a sensitivity analysis is performed to study the dependence of the pre-distortion/ equalization performance ( measured as TD) on the channel parameters.
