The frequency stability of single-tuned parametric systems

  • 12 Accesses


A general fluctuational analysis of a single-tuned parametric system has been carried out in an operating mode with multiplication and division of the frequency by two. Expressions are derived for the short-term frequency instability which is associated with natural and engineering noises of the system.
