In this work we predict the nonlinear behaviour of an eight-pole quasi-elliptic bandpass high temperature superconducting (HTS) filter with an equivalent circuit extracted from intermodulation measurements performed at the centre of the filter passband. We present measurements that show that the equivalent circuit is able to predict the intermodulation products produced by the filter when driven by two in-band or out-of-band sinusoidal signals. Numerical techniques based on harmonic balance are used to extract the elements of the equivalent circuit and to simulate its nonlinear performance.
