Is the phase diagram for an oscilliator (all sorts of oscilliations) always clockwise? If it is so, why?
No, the phase diagram for an oscillator can be clockwise or counterclockwise depending on the direction of the oscillation.
A clockwise phase diagram indicates that the oscillator is moving in the same direction as the phase angle, meaning that the amplitude of the oscillation is increasing.
No, the direction of the phase diagram depends on the specific system and its parameters, so there is no general trend for clockwise or counterclockwise phase diagrams to be more common.
Yes, the direction of the phase diagram can change if the parameters of the system change, causing the behavior of the oscillator to change.
The shape and direction of the phase diagram can provide information about the stability of the oscillator. A stable oscillator will have a closed loop in the phase diagram, while an unstable oscillator will have an open loop. The direction of the phase diagram can also indicate the rate of change in the amplitude of the oscillation, with a clockwise direction indicating increasing amplitude and a counterclockwise direction indicating decreasing amplitude.
