6.Basic Principles of Sinusoidal Oscillator Nonlinear amplitude control To ensure that oscillations will start, the A β is slightly greater than unity. As the power supply is turned on, oscillation will grown in amplitude. When the amplitude reaches the desired level, the nonlinear network comes into action and cause the Aβ to exactly unity.
