This paper presents a technique to obtain the transition curves of fractional periodic time-delayed (FPTD) systems based on a proposed explicit harmonic balance (EHB) method. This method gives the analytical Hill matrix of FPTD systems explicitly with a symbolic computation-free algorithm. Furthermore, all linear operations on Fourier basis vectors including fractional order derivative operators and time-delayed operators for a linear FPTD system are obtained. This technique is illustrated with parametrically excited simple and double pendulum systems, with both time-delayed states and fractional damping.
