IEE Colloquium on the Use of Systems Analysis and Modelling Tools: Experiences and Applications
Year: 1998
Page range: 4/1-4/6

The motivation for out project was to gain a better understanding of the nonlinear behaviour of the Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) circuit. The existence of chaos in an ordinary PLL circuit being used for frequency demodulation was demonstrated over a decade ago [1], and in this presentation some of the previous results and recent developments will be demonstrated using Mathematica.
