Re: AC resonance circuit with DC electrolytic capacitors? (resonating, res...

I think that the heating/cooling response curve of the bulb may
be a couple of orders of magnitude too slow for anything except the
lowest of oscillations. I seem to remember a kid in my class back ca
1960 who tried, unsuccessfully, to build a filament-modulated
amplifier. If one could tie down the response curve time constant for
the bulb filament, in might make an interesting simulation.

This effect is probably due to saturation of the inductor core.
Fairly easy to duplicate with the right circuit constants. Increase
in current raises the filament temperature and drops the fraction of
the voltage across the inductor.
