Generally, the output matching circuit has the most influence to the output power of oscillator and existing method for output matching has difficulty for making the optimum output matching circuit because the matching has to be done nearby the infinite impedance area of the Smith Chart. In this paper, it is studied for the output matching circuit of the microwave oscillator to get the maximum output power. The maximum output point can be found by adjusting the position of moving short in the Tuner while the oscillator is operating after connect the 3-dB coupler Tuner to the oscillator without output matching circuit. To design the oscillator for the maximum output power can be done easily with the microstrip line which is realized from the measured S-parameters of Tuner. In compare the oscillator by the existing method with another one by the suggested method in this paper, the first one has 6.45 dBm output power and second one has 9.71 dBm which is 3.26 dBm higher than the first one at the oscillation frequency 1.0338 GHz.
