Analysis of Limit Cycles using Describing Functions and Harmonic Balance MethodConsider

Typically

Motivation and the structure of the approach

Given this system – first we would like to study its stability using the circle, Popov,

and small gain theorems.

Assume that none of the methods show the stability of the origin. Thus it may be

unstable. The next thing to look for – oscillation or limit cycles.

In general, we can apply the Poincare-Bendixson or the index theory – but this is

only for the planar system. The harmonic balance method allows one to study

the limit cycle in the feedback system shown above for any nonlinearity.

Motivation

Problem Formulation & Main Result

As it has been pointed out before, the approach to the solution of the problem is

as follows :

Solution (Continued)

Still it is an infinite dimensional equation. To make it finite dim., we use the

filter hypothesis :

Then, we have

- qth order harmonic balance
could be solves numerically (by computer)

Assume q =1. Then we have

Solution (Continued)

Therefore the first equation is satisfied for all G(0). The second equation can be written

as follows :

and

Solution (Continued)

Introduce the describing function

Then equation (1) can be written as

If (2) has a solution a, w, then the original system “probably” has

a periodic solution close to asinwt, if (2) does not have a solution,

then the original system probably has no periodic solution.

Alternate Method

The problem could also be approached analytically

So find w’s where G(jw) intersects with real axis. Then find a from the first

Equation for each point of intersection.
