Hello, Abbas.

The term "tank circuit" refers to any combined inductance and capacitance. With at least one of each, you have a tank circuit.

The origin of the term "tank" eludes me right now although I think I once read how the word came about. I wish I could remember it now, but I can't.

Good luck.
