For systems that contain both frequency division multiplexing and bandpass nonlinearities, the high sampling rate that is necessary for accurate simulation contributes to the long runtimes. A partial sum of products (ParSOP) method is proposed to reduce the sampling rate of such systems. The ParSOP method allows the simulation sampling frequency to be reduced by only generating those intermodulation products that are centered in the bandwidth of the single observed modulated subcarrier. Simulation results, obtained by using the complex power series nonlinear model on a filtered binary phase shift keying system, showed that a reduction in the simulation runtime by an order of magnitude is possible through the use of the ParSOP method on systems involving third-order nonlinearities.
