How to Model a Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) in Excel – part#1

A Phase-Locked Loop is a type of electronic circuit. It generates an oscillation with the same frequency as a reference oscillation and a relatively constant phase difference  with respect to the same reference. The applications spectrum of such a circuit are extremely wide. Signal modulation, demodulation, detection and filtering, frequency conversion and synthesis are just a fraction of what this circuit can do. Though very simple, it is often not enough understood in industry by people who use it or even design it.  This tutorial of a short series which uses the principles presented before in this blog, to casually model a basic PLL in Excel with minimum math.
