Homework Help: Identifying the oscilator

  1. Dec 25, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    hello;
    i have this past paper question relevant to a oscillator
    they have given the following schematic and question is
    "identify the type of oscillator giving reasons"

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    i tried lecture notes,some books but couldnt figure out this is a hartely or colprits or any other type,i dont see this circuit has standard tank circuit.

    can someone help me with this?

    Assuming CB is large enough to have negligible reactance, the resonant "tank" is made up from L1, C, and L2. The resonant circuit is completed via the power supply.
