Hold on, Why not just use a PLL (software or otherwise) using a squared up
zero-crossing detector on the feedback winding? When in resonance the drive
signals will be the same frequency and zero degrees phase shift w.r.t. the
feedback signal. A 4046 might just do the job in edge detect mode, but a
microcontroller would be more flexible.
