Abstract

When analyzing and modeling dynamical systems in the frequency domain, the effects of nonlinearities need to be taken into account. This paper contributes to the analysis of the effects of nonlinearities in the frequency domain by supplying new analytical tools and results that allow spectral analysis of the output of a class of nonlinear systems. A mapping from the parameters defining the nonlinear and LTI dynamics to the output spectrum is derived, which allows analytic description and analysis of the corresponding higher order sinusoidal input describing functions. The theoretical results are illustrated by examples that show both the use and efficiency of the proposed algorithms.
