We present the results of experiments with 20 electronic limit-cycle oscillators, globally coupled via a common load. We analyze collective dynamics of the ensemble in cases of linear and nonlinear phase-shifting unit in the global feedback loop. In the first case we observe the standard Kuramoto transition to collective synchrony. In the second case, we observe transition to a self-organized quasiperiodic state, predicted in [M. Rosenblum and A. Pikovsky, PRL, (2007)]. We demonstrate a good correspondence between our experimental results and previously developed theory.We also describe a simple measure which reveals the macroscopic incoherence-coherence transition in a finite–size ensemble.
