It consists of the capacitor and an inductor. The capacitor is already charged and connected to an inductor with the switch between them. When the switch is open, nothing will happen. When the switch is closed the charge stored by the capacitor will start discharging, and the electrons will start flowing in the circuit. Please note that the direction of flow of current in the circuit will be opposite to the direction of flow of electrons. When the current flows in the circuit, the current will pass from inductor due to which magnetic field is generated.

What three conditions in a Barkhausen criterion must be met for oscillation to occur? The Barkhausen stability criterion is just an obvious observation. It is a necessary but NOT sufficient criterion for oscillations. The Barkhausen stability criterion states that an oscillator will oscillate when the total phase shift from input to output and back to input is an integral multiple of degrees and the system gain is equal to 1.
The proper Barkhausen topology is defined as a loop of an amplitude determining inverting nonlinear amplifier four terminal two-port and a linear passive frequency determining feed-back four terminal two-port circuit. It is obvious that the loop gain is 1 and the phase shift is a multiple of degrees when the loop is closed. The Barkhausen criterion is necessary but not sufficient. Question: Who was the first to open the loop and claim that the criterion is sufficient?
Linear oscillators are mathematical fiction. Statements like "the non-linear characteristic will bring the poles to the imaginary axis" are of course nonsense. The bias-point of the amplifier will vary with time so the small-signal model of the circuit will vary with time i. The mechanism behind the steady state behavior is a kind of energy balance. Energy is received from the power source when the poles are in RHP. Energy is dissipated in the loss elements when the poles are in LHP.
The frequency is a kind of time average of the imaginary part of the complex pole pair. The Barkhausen criteria is just the obvious observation that the gain around the closed loop of an amplifier and a feed-back circuit is 1 one and the phase-shift is 0 zero or a multiple of 2pi. The Barkhausen criteria is NOT sufficient for start-up of oscillations.
Phase-noise is an expression for the variation of the imaginary part of the complex pole-pair during the period of the oscillations.
Barkhausen stability criterion
The kernel of the criterion is that a complex pole pair must be placed on the imaginary axis of the complex frequency plane if steady state oscillations should take place. Often feedback network consists of only resistive elements and is independent of frequency but amplifier gain is a function of frequency. Apparently there is not a compact formulation of an oscillation criterion that is both necessary and sufficient. Multivibrator is a circuit which generate non sinusoidal wave forms such as square, triangular, pulse e.
