Steady-state condition

In telecommunication, the term steady-state condition has the following meanings:

1. In a communications circuit, a condition in which some specified characteristic of a condition, such as a value, rate, periodicity, or amplitude, exhibits only negligible change over an arbitrarily long period.

2. In an electrical circuit, the condition that exists after all initial transients or fluctuating conditions have damped out, and all currents, voltages, or fields remain essentially constant, or oscillate uniformly.

3. In fiber optics, synonym for equilibrium mode distribution[?].
