The paper treats the development of a non‐linearly stabilized oscillator model for generating four sine waves in quadrature. the treatment appears important although quadrature signals can also be generated by a well‐known twophase oscillator. the latter generates only two of the signals needed in a four‐phase system, but the rest of the phases signals could nevertheless be generated by simply inverting the two existing signals. For certain applications, however, the generation of all four signals in a completely cyclic and symmetrical manner is preferable. This method of generation is dealt with in the present paper. A previous paper of ours has treated a system of a similar objective. the present system, however, is much simpler. This simplicity is manifested not only through the mathematical representation but also when an electronic realization of the system is considered. the present model realization appears considerably less expensive, since the number of necessarily non‐linear operations is much reduced. This reduction is due to the fact that the non‐linearly stabilized model imbeds a ‘partially conservative’ linear oscillator. the concept of ‘partial conservativity’ has been introduced recently. the present work treats comprehensively the advantages that are gained by imbedding a partially conservative oscillator.
