This paper analyses in detail the parameters of the large signal mathematical model of a Gunn device operating in the harmonic mode using the frequency-domain harmonic balance method and indicates the variation trend of the output power and the operating frequency of a harmonic oscillator under the influence of the model parameters of the device. The analysis results offer the theoretical basis for the production of Gunn devices and for the design of harmonic oscillators
