Abstract : A nonlinear control system sometimes oscillates at a frequency that is an integral submultiple of the driving frequency in response to a sinusoidal input. Such a response is undesirable. An analog computer study is undertaken to investigate the occurrence of subharmonic oscillation in second order systems with nonlinearities characterized by saturation and hysteresis effects.
