Mathematical representation of microwave oscillators by use of the Rieke diagram
Abstract
While oscillator properties have in the past been described in graphical form, due to the nonlinearity of the device, they may be described by several numerical values by means of the mathematical representation method originated by van der Pol. Attention is given to the sinusoidal output wave form of an oscillator, with an explanation of the manner in which the formula coefficients can be determined from several points measured on a Rieke diagram. Practical examples are given.
