This study aims to investigate the harmonic resonance of third-order forced van der Pol oscillator with fractional-order derivative using the asymptotic method. The approximately analytical solution for the system is first determined, and the amplitude–frequency equation of the oscillator is established. The stability condition of the harmonic solution is then obtained by means of Lyapunov theory. A comparison between the traditional integer-order of forced van der Pol oscillator and the considered fractional-order one follows the numerical simulation. Finally, the numerical results are analyzed to show the influences of the parameters in the fractional-order derivative on the steady-state amplitude, the amplitude–frequency curves, and the system stability.
