## How do you control the frequency of a Hartley oscillator?

The frequency of oscillations can be adjusted by varying the “tuning” capacitor, C or by varying the position of the iron-dust core inside the coil (inductive tuning) giving an output over a wide range of frequencies making it very easy to tune.

### What is the frequency of the oscillator?

A low-frequency oscillator (LFO) is an electronic oscillator that generates a frequency below approximately 20 Hz. This term is typically used in the field of audio synthesizers, to distinguish it from an audio frequency oscillator….Negative-resistance oscillator.

Device | Frequency |
---|---|

Gyrotron tube | ~600 GHz |

#### Why Hartley oscillator is not suitable low frequency range?

The Hartley oscillator can’t be used as a low-frequency oscillator because the size of the inductor and the value of the inductor is large.

**How do you increase the frequency of an oscillator?**

To increase the frequency of oscillation, two methods are commonly used. First, making the ring from a smaller number of inverters results in a higher frequency of oscillation, with about the same power consumption. Second, the supply voltage may be increased.

**How to calculate the frequency of a Hartley oscillator?**

The equation for frequency of Hartley oscillator is given as f = 1 2 π L T C L T = L 1 + L 2 + 2 M Here, LT is the total cumulatively coupled inductance; L1 and L2 represent inductances of 1 st and 2 nd coils; and M represents mutual inductance.

## What’s the difference between Colpitts and Hartley oscillators?

A hartley oscillator is very similar to a colpitts oscillator. The difference is that while a hartley oscillator uses 2 inductors and 1 capacitor, a colpitts oscillator uses 2 capacitors and 1 inductor.

### How is a Hartley oscillator similar to a transistor?

In transistorized Hartley oscillator, the gain is depends on the tank circuit elements L1 and L2 whereas in Op-amp oscillator gain is less depends on the tank circuit elements and hence provides great frequency stability. The operation of this circuit is similar to the transistor version of Hartley oscillator.

#### How does mutual inductance affect the Hartley oscillator?

If the fields are in opposite direction, then the mutual inductance will reduce the total inductance. Therefore, the oscillator working frequency will be increased. The design of the Hartley oscillator considers this mutual effect of the two inductors.
