RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Are cheap (or free) Harmonic Balance programs out there? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I'm looking for a cheap Harmonic Balance program out there. I've tried HABALA (or whatever it was called) and it was difficult to use...in fact I never got it to work. Any others out there?

Hi jom,

I have searched many times for open source harmonic balance software for Windows with no success. You used to be able to get "Harmonic Balance" from UC Berkeley, but it's hard to find now even on their site. It's probably 16-bit code that will not run on the newer 64-bit operating systems.

http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/IPRO/Software/Description/harmonic.balance.html

Ansoft offers a free student version.

Yep, I found both those sites yesterday. I still have no clue about that Berkeley site. It gives a bunch of info then....nothing.

The Ansoft doesn't have the Harmonic Balance in the student version evidently. They stopped that 5/6 years ago with SV 8.5 or some such.

I wonder how one would approach writing your own code??

Thanks

jom
