The hunt (self-oscillations) of a physical system may often be removed by the introduction of an appropriate stabilizing signal which changes the open loop gain in a nonlinear manner. More generally, the performance of nonlinear systems in many cases may be improved by the introduction of extra signals. The theory of signal stabilization developed here extends the earlier work by Oldenburger and Liu involving an equivalent gain concept. It is shown that with the aid of the Fourier series the designer can determine the periodic signal to be inserted at one point in a loop to yield a desired stabilizing input to a nonlinear element in the loop. The use of sinusoidal and triangular inputs to a limiter are compared. An example where a limiter is the only nonlinearity is employed to illustrate the theory. The approach developed here explains experimental results previously reported by Oldenburger.
