A new method for the determination of the locking range of oscillators

Christoffersen, Carlos E., Condon, Marissa and Xu, Tao (2007) A new method for the determination of the locking range of oscillators. In: ECCTD 2007 - 18th European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design, 27-30 August 2007, Seville, Spain.

A time-domain method for the determination of the injection-locking range of oscillators is presented. The method involves three time dimensions: the first and the second are warped time scales used for the free-running frequency and the external excitation, respectively and the third is to account for slow transients to reach a steady-state regime. The locking range is determined by tuning the frequency of the external excitation until the oscillator locks. The locking condition is determined by analyzing the Jacobian matrix of the system. The method is advantageous in that the computational effort is independent of the presence of widely separated time constants in the oscillator. Numerical results for a Van Der Pol oscillator are presented.
