flywheel effect
In an oscillator, the continuation of oscillations after removal of the control stimulus. Note 1: The flywheel effect is usually caused by interacting inductive and capacitive circuits in the oscillator. Note 2: The flywheel effect may be desirable, such as in phase-locked loops used in synchronous systems, or undesirable, such as in voltage-controlled oscillators. Synonym flywheeling.
