Abstract:

Work was directed toward the study of techniques for synchronizing tuning-fork oscillators. A laboratory evaluation was performed to determine the frequency shift response characteristics ofA TUNING-FORK OSCILLATOR. Two frequency control systems, all-electronic and mechanical servo, were studied for possible application to the synchronization problem. The electronic control system was adopted as the best approach following theoretical analysis and successful operation of a synchronizer test setup, using this technique. Development efforts resulted in an improved frequency control circuit and frequency memory circuit. A breadboard model of the complete synchronizer was designed, fabricated, and evaluated. Performance of the breadboard model was well within all specified requirements. Author
