The Meissner oscillating circuit used in this experiment should
demonstrate the principle of deattenuation of an oscillating
circuit via feedback. A system consisting of an amplifier and a
feedback circuit can be caused to oscillate at a specific frequency
if amplification is at least large enough to compensate the loss in
amplitude in the feedback circuit and the feedback voltage at the
desired frequency is in-phase with the amplified voltage. This set
of requisites, known as Barkhausen's Precondition for Self-
Excitation, can be fulfilled by the circuit in this experiment. The
feedback factor, i.e. the ratio of the number of turns on the
oscillation coil to the number on the feedback coil, is 4:1.
Therefore, the voltage amplification of 4 is sufficient to
fulfill the precondition for the amplitude.
The precondition for phase is only fulfilled for the intrinsic
frequency of the oscillating circuit because there is a phase shift
between voltage and current for all other frequencies.
