ABSTRACT

The collective behavior of a ring of coupled identical van der Pol oscillators is numerically studied in this work. Constant, gaussian and random distributions of the coupling parameter along the ring are considered. Three values of the oscillators constant are assumed in order to cover from quasilinear to nonlinear dynamic performance. Single and multiple coupled frequencies are obtained using power spectra of the long term time series. Phase portraits are obtained from numerical simulations, and the coupled behavior is analyzed, compared and discussed.
