17 - THE EFFECT OF SMALL FLUCTUATIONS ON OSCILLATOR OPERATION*
Review articleOpen access
Abstract:

Publisher SummaryThis chapter discusses the effect of small fluctuations on oscillator operation. Certain aspects of the general problem of analysing the effect of fluctuations on self-oscillatory circuits are of practical interest. In some cases, it is important to estimate the fluctuations, in phase and amplitude, of the self-oscillations because of the internal noise of the valve or random variations in the voltage of the supply source. Sometimes, it is necessary to calculate the spectrum of the oscillations of an oscillator that is modulated by a fluctuation voltage. Slow fluctuations relate to the instability of the input voltage, as filters in the supply sources usually eliminate rapid oscillations in the mains voltage. The chapter also presents the effect of shot effect fluctuations in the valve current on the operation of an oscillator.
