Resistance Devices Ramon Vargas Patron rvargas@inictel.gob.pe INICTEL The usual procedure for the production of sustained oscillations in tuned L-C networks is to overcome circuit losses through the use of designed-in positive feedback or regeneration. Then, during the circuit’s on-transient oscillations will build up triggered by the thermal noise of circuit elements. Two possible situations may arise for a potential oscillator. The tuned active network may have excess loss, in which case the circuit will refuse to oscillate (Fig.1-a). Nevertheless, it may still work as a regenerative or high-gain narrow-band tuned amplifier. The second situation that may arise is that of a successful oscillator. In this case, excess loss will have been compensated for (Fig.1-b) and a sustained oscillation is obtained at the circuit’s output. Fig.1 A potential oscillator faces two situations In the analog realm, two sine-wave oscillator types are distinguished: the feedback and the negative-resistance oscillator. Regarding cancellation of resistive losses, both types may be shown to be equivalent, losses being effectively cancelled out by the negative resistance contributed by the active device and associated reactive components. Two ways of carrying out this process are shown in simplified form in Fig.2 for a series
