A popular circuit known as a Hartley oscillator. Its identifiable feature is the tapped coil in the LC tank circuit. Notice that the coil`s tap point is grounded. The amplifier portion of the oscillator is a common-emitter amplifier. Therefore, the ac base voltage and ac collector voltage are 180 out of phase. This means that the feedback network must provide an additional 180 phase

shift so that the feedback voltage is of the correct phase to sustain oscillations. To help you understand the circuit`s operation, it has been redrawn in Fig. 2-2( b). Notice that L 1 is in parallel with L 2 and C 3 in series. At the resonant frequency of the tank circuit, the net reactance of the L 2 C 3 branch appears capacitive. Also, the net capacitive reactance of the L 2 C 3 branch equals the inductive reactance of the L 1 branch. This gives us the following mathematical relationship.
