An optimization method is presented for constrained beam steering with null formation in linear coupled oscillator arrays. The method is based on a perturbation model of the far field of the array that includes both amplitude and phase perturbations, to accommodate prescribed nulls. Moreover, it takes into account the array nonlinear dynamics through a first-order approximation model of the array steady state. The optimization results are verified by harmonic balance simulations. Also, the stability of the optimized solutions is examined by perturbing the steady state solution and is verified with envelope transient. Design examples are used to demonstrate the validity and limitations of the proposed method
