The relaxation oscillator employs a negative integral action driving a bistable dynamic hysteresis-type nonlinear system via a feedback interconnection. The mathematical framework for the analysis of relaxation oscillator is developed. The background theory including a bound on the amount of modeling uncertainity, measured in gap metric, is presented. The theory guarantees the persistance of oscillatory behavior for the uncertain system. The robustness bounds are calculated by a specific class of perturbations of the negative integrator in the relay oscillator.
