Hi,

May I know what kind of problem would cause phase shifting in a PLL output? The output of the PLL always shift with respect to the Local oscillator signal

Thanks

phase shifting

It's present by design of the PLL, depending on the involved phase detector. The usual analog phase detector gives a 90° phase shift.

Hi,

The amount of phase shift varies a with time...though the output frequency remains constant....

does not sound like the constant phase shift you have mentioned

pll for phase shifting

Because you give us so little knowledge (pll part number, frequencies, divisor ratios,etc), you can not expect an accurate answer.

"constant" can only mean "nearly constant" because - as a result of feedback action - the phase shift must swing around the target of 90 deg by a small amount which depends on the loop gain.
Therefore my question: How large is the unwanted phase shift ? Constant or not ?
