Title:
A General Method Based on Harmonic Balance Techniques to Simulate Noise in Free Running Oscillators 
Abstract:
A novel approach using perturbation theory for simulating the noise behavior in free-running microwave oscillators based on a piecewise harmonic balance technique is outlined and applied to a planar integrated microwave oscillator at 14 GHz. A single-sideband phase noise of -90 dBc/Hz at an offset frequency of 100 kHz was measured. Simulated and measured single-sideband phase noise values agree within the accuracy of measurements. The method is limited neither to certain circuit topologies nor t...    »
