HTS materials are known to produce intermodulation and other nonlinear effects, and this may restrict their use in wireless communication systems. While significant efforts are being done to measure and characterize nonlinear properties of HTS materials, there are very few works that relate these properties to system parameters. In this work we attempt to bridge this gap by using harmonic balance algorithms to analyze the nonlinear performance of superconducting filters subject to the WCDMA signals specified by 3GPP for the UMTS wireless system. This is a first step to predict compliance with system parameters like adjacent channel leakage power ratio (ACLR) or error vector magnitude (EVM).
