Approximate analytical expressions for quasi-steady-state pulse parameters of stretched pulses in dispersion-managed fibers are derived. The analysis uses the same approach as that developed for the analysis of stretched-pulse fiber ring lasers but with improved calculation of nonlinearity-induced pulse chirping by means of an approximate variational method. The energy-enhancement factor of the stretched pulse is derived, showing reasonable agreement with numerical results.
