Properties of a coupled optoelectronic microwave oscillator are studied theoretically. We find analytical expressions for the steady-state values of the pulse duration, chirp, optical power, and the power of the microwave signal generated in the systems as the function of the parameters of the optical and microwave loops. The analytical expressions are compared with the results of the numerical simulations as well as the experimental data.
