In this study, wave propagation phenomena of phase states are observed at van der Pol oscillators coupled by inductors as a ladder. For the case of 17 oscillators, interesting wave propagation phenomena of phase states are found. By using the relationship between phase states and oscillation frequencies, the mechanisms of the propagation and the reflection of wave are explained. Circuit experimental results agree well with computer calculated results qualitatively.
