Abstract:

A method is presented for analyzing a selfexcited oscillator which does exhibit several modes of behavior. The methods employed, although quite general, are applied in detail to the analysis of a circuit having much in common with a large number of class-C oscillators. In the circuit chosen the tube was replaced by two non-linear conductances representing grid and plate conduction. Results are checked against the performance of an experimental oscillator. The actual performance of the oscillator is shown to correspond quite closely to the predicted behavior. The several phase-plane configurations, the variation in behavior as a parameter is varied, and the bistable operation all occur as predicted suggesting the probable validity of the mathematical model and giving considerable insight into self-biased oscillator operation.
