An Accelerated Poincaré-Map Method for Finding the PSS of Autonomous Oscillators
A novel time-domain method for finding the periodic steady-state of a free-running electrical oscillator is introduced. The method is based on the extrapolation technique MPE. This method is applied to the well-known Colpitt’s Oscillator, for which it turns out to have super-linear convergence.
