Ring oscillators aren't going to be naturally frequency-
linear in any case, and less so as you slide across the
low end where current is exponential w/ VIN (worse
than square-law at the big end). You probably need
to make the bias scheme more elaborate, with current
being the function of control voltage which makes the
linear-frequency result (may

cross coupled of two transistor will give negaive impedance therefore negative gm, or transconductance.
it will compensate for loss of inductor and resistor therefore commonly used in oscillator design.

It will be both educative and entertainment to design a transistor oscillator with a hand made low power transformer - the voltage can be high but the current can be low (must be very low) and you will not get a shock. Transformers (most of them) do not have cancer causing parts/ elements and they can be very small because they will not be handling

You do not have a piezo buzzer. Instead you have a piezo transducer (a piezo speaker). A piezo buzzer has a built-in transistor oscillator to make it beeeeep when a DC voltage powers it. A piezo transducer is attached to a metal plate and it expands which causes the assembly to bend in one direction when voltage is applied and it bends in the other

The turns ratio depends on the output impedance of the transistor. The Vb is 4.7/14.7 X 12 ~ 4V so Ve ~ 3.3 so the Ic is 10mA. This is the standing bias on the transistor. During the oscillation cycle it is impossible for the current to go down to zero , so the negative peak RF current is say 9mA. I would presume that the positive half cycle w

You do not have an oscillator because there is no transistor or opamp to keep it going. Instead you have an LC that rings like a tapped bell.
The pulse activates it with power causing it to ring for a moment if the power is applied through a series resistor, then it rings again for a moment when the power is disconnected. It can feed an amplifier

Normally you want the buffer to draw only minimal power from the oscillator.

Totally agree. The rule of thumb designing ANY oscillator is to have minimum power possible. This would help for all of the oscillator characteristics, as frequency stability, phase noise, harmonics, etc.
After that, you can amplify the oscillator signal however you want and get any power you need.

Yes, something like this.

Perhaps Orcad calculates based on a reversed biased cap, whereas Proteus does not.?
I don't believe that polarized capacitors are modelled specifically at all.
Trivial explanation, 1 ms simulation time in Orcad is just too short to see oscillations.
In addition, you might stumble upon a standard oscillator simulation problem.
