T h i s paper considers the response of V a n der Pol's oscillator to random excitation I t i s shown that the output of the oscillator consists of a periodic term, plzrs a narrow band noise term centered at the 7zatural frequency of the oscallator. The root-mean-square amfilitude of this noise term i s shown to be probortional to the square root of the spectral density of the excitation, and inr~evsel~ proportional to the amplitz~rle of self-oscillation IN mcrh-r yews considerabk interest has… CONTINUE READING
