In this paper, the approximate analytical solutions of period-1 motion in the periodically forced van der Pol oscillator are obtained by the generalized harmonic balanced method. The stability and bifurcation analysis of the period-1 solutions is completed through the eigenvalue analysis, and numerical illustrations of periodic-1 solutions are given to verify the approximate motion. This investigation provides more accurate solutions of period-1 motions in the van der pol oscillator for a better and comprehensive understanding of motions in such an oscillator.
