SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS OF SELF-EXCITED OSCILLATIONS IN NON-LINEAR SYSTEMS. AN APPLICATION TO ELECTRONIC OSCILLATORS.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Electronic Oscillators are studied as an application of the general method in the parameter plane of analyzing non-linear systems with self-excited oscillations. Computational methods are developed which avoid the lengthy calculations required by the general method for the second and third order systems which arise. The single parameter and multiparameter sensitivity of the frequency characteristics are determined and it is demonstrated that these sensitivity measures may be used to determine the best configurations of networks to be used to minimize sensitivity to specific parameters. The method employed suggests application to the frequency characteristics of passive and active filters.
