Autodyne effect application for stability analysis of the steady-state mode of UHF oscillating systems
Keywords:autodyne, autodyne characteristics, autodyne response, double-diode autodyne, mutual locking, stability, partial oscillator
AbstractThe autodyne characteristics are oifered to use for steady-state stability analysis of the UHF oscillators. Theoretical substantiation of the proposed method is performed on an example of the oscillating system's mathematical model presented in the form of two mutually-locked partial oscillators under a condition of strong coupling between them. Peculiarities of stable functioning zones for oscillating systems are described at different partial oscillator parameters and for various conditions of their mutual coupling. Experimental investigations are performed based on the 8mm-wavelength range double-diode oscillator.
