Fractional Van der Pol oscillator

From the book Volume 4 Applications in Physics, Part A

  • J. A. Tenreiro Machado and António M. Lopes


This chapter presents the Van der Pol oscillator (VPO). Several formulations of the VPO are analyzed, namely the classical integer-order and the real and complex fractional-order models. The autonomous and forced versions are investigated in time and frequency domains, using phase portraits, spectral analysis, and bifurcation diagrams.
