 
This Performance Plot shows the measured frequency vs. the stepped RV1 parameter. There is a
clear linearity up to about 13K and then the curve becomes nonlinear, an important piece of design
information. Performance Plots use performance functions and plot these functions versus a stepped parameter. Performance functions are also used in Monte Carlo runs. Here is a version of the Wein bridge circuit that runs a Monte Carlo set of runs and plots a histogram of the frequency spread. 


The dialog box shows the measured frequency. Each click of the Go To button increments the N
value and finds the next measurement. The frequency value will change a little with each measurement
until the circuit stabilizes.
