The discrete van der paul oscillator: finite differences and slow amplitudes

Zaitsev Valerij Vasilevich, Samara National Research University

For sampling of time in a differential equation of movement of van der Pol oscillator (generator) it is offered to use a combination of the numerical method of finite differences and the asymptotic method of the slowl-changing amplitudes. The difference approximations of temporal derivatives are selected so that, first, to save conservatism and natural frequency of the linear circuit of self-oscillatory system in the discrete time. Secondly, coincidence of the difference shortened equation for the complex amplitude of self-oscillations in the discrete time with Euler’s approximation of the shortened equation for amplitude of self-oscillations in analog system prototype is required. It is shown that realization of such approach allows to create discrete mapping of the van der Pol oscillator and a number of mappings of Thomson type oscillators. The adequacy of discrete models to analog prototypes is confirmed with also numerical experiment.
