The major objective of this Chapter are to give an introduction into modern theory of sine wave oscillators, to explain the main problems in construction of self-oscillating systems, to determine the conditions for excitation and establishment of stable periodic oscillation in such systems, and to acquaint with the principles of practical oscillator circuit design. To become familiar with the presented material, the reader should have the initial knowledge of operational amplifiers and the methods of solution for differential and operator equations within the course of high mathematics. After studying this Chapter, the readers will know and be able to explain the operation of an oscillator, determine the conditions of excitation of periodic self-oscillations in it, and to know the methods for decrease of nonlinear distortions.
