We obtain and solve algebraic eigenvalue equations that predict the dependence of the pulse energy of a dispersion-managed soliton on pulse duration, chirp, and dispersion-map parameters. We demonstrate that a variational ansatz based on a Gaussian pulse shape remains useful even when the actual pulse shape is not Gaussian, and we show that the enhancement factor saturates as the pulse duration decreases.
