Heya Everyone

Im slightly confused as to how LC phase shift oscillator work ?

Its a circuit consisting of 1 op-amp ( used as oscillator), 1 LC loop, few resistors. The op-amp has a reference voltage applied to the non-inverting end (+ve).

The inverting end has a feedback resistor and the Vout from the LC loop connected. It looks something like this, except replace the 3RC with 1 LC - http://www.play-hookey.com/oscillators/phase_shift_oscillator.html [Broken]

Ok so whatever I've read on the internet- 1LC circuit has 2 poles ( not sure what that means ) ,thus it contributes up to 180 degree phase shift per pole pair. RC circuit has a 60 degree phase shift and hence we require 3 of them !

Now, oscillation occur at the frequency were the total phase shift through 1 LC or 3 RC is 180 degree ( WHY?)

Could someone please explain to me how this works? As I am totally LOST !

Thanks
