1 1 School of Engineering Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering 332:223 Principles of Electrical Engineering I Laboratory Experiment #4 Title: Operational Amplifiers 1 Introduction Objectives To introduce operational amplifiers and dependent sources. To explore those circuit connections that allow operational amplifiers to operate in their linear region. Overview Ideal operational amplifiers (Op Amps) are twoports (a set of two terminals is called a port) that can produce an output voltage that is directly proportional to their input voltage (linear operation). Op Amps can be operated in two ways: open loop and closed loop. The latter circuit connection is the only one that can force the Op Amp to operate in its linear region. The standard inverting and noninverting configurations will be explored. An equivalent circuit model can be used to model or simulate the ideal Op Amp or to incorporate deviations from ideal behavior. 2 Theory 2.1 Dependent Sources Dependent sources are sources whose value varies as a function of a specified voltage or current elsewhere in the circuit. The relationship could be of any form, but in this course we will introduce only those sources whose value is proportional to a voltage or current elsewhere in the circuit. Since the output quantity can be voltage or current and so can be the controlling quantity, there are four types of

2 2 such dependent sources, whose names, characteristic equations, and symbols are shown in Fig Fig. 1 a Voltage Controlled Voltage Source (VCVS) V = μ s V x Fig. 1 b Current Controlled Voltage Source (CCVS) V = s I x Fig. 1 c Voltage Controlled Current Source (VCCS) I = s V x Fig. 1 d Current Controlled Current Source (CCCS) I = s I x 2.2 Operational Amplifiers Op Amp Terminal Characteristics A 741 Op Amp is shown in Fig. 2 below. Op amps have two input terminals (input port); the input voltage V i to the Op amps is taken across these terminals. One terminal is called inverting or negative and the voltage there is usually denoted as V n and the other as noninverting (V p ) so that V i =(V p V n ). The output is taken between V o 2 and ground. Additional terminals (such as V or V cc, V or V cc ) are used for bias, offset etc. 1 Note that in the characteristic equations expressed in Fig. 1, the proportionality constants μ and are dimensionless, has the units of resistance (and is called a "transresistance"), and has the units of conductance (transconductance). Notations,,, and μ are not necessarily standard. 2 often signified as V out

3 3 Figure 2a The realistic model of an operational amplifier is given in your text and repeated below with equivalent notation. It involves separate input and output circuits. The input consists of an input resistance R i between the inverting and noninverting terminal. The output consists of a voltage dependent voltage source (with voltage A v V i ) 3 in series with an output resistance R o. Note that the only connection between the input and output is through the proportionality relation of the dependent source. a R o c V( a, b ) R i n μ V( a, b ) b 0 Figure 2b The parameters involved are as follows: 1. Input Voltage V i : V(a,b)=V i =(V p V n ) Output Voltage V o : The output voltage of an Op Amp is proportional to the input voltage, provided it remains less in absolute value than the DC bias voltages V and V. 3. Input Resistance R i : The input resistance appears between the inverting and noninverting terminal (so that V i appears across R i ) and can be found by dividing the input voltage V i by the current entering the noninverting input terminal V p or exiting the inverting terminal V n. 4. Open Loop Voltage Gain μ or A v or A: The open loop voltage gain is the proportionality constant in the dependent source equation where V = A v V i (or V=μV(a,b)) 5. Different books use different notations, your text book uses A for A v. Some other text book uses μ for A v. 3 or, in the case of Fig.2b, μv(a,b) which is the alternate notation. 4 Op amps could be considered differential amplifiers because they amplify this input voltage, which is the difference between the voltages at the input terminals. 5 Note that in general (i.e. if R o is not zero) V is not equal to the output V o whenever there exists a load R L.

4 4 5. Output Resistance R o : The output resistance appears as a resistor in series with the dependent source. In the presence of a nonzero output resistance R o, the output voltage V o across a load R L is not all of V = A v V i (or V=μV(a,b)) and can be found by analyzing the voltage divider between R o and R L Linear Operation and Saturation Op Amps have two regions of operation: linear and saturation. In the linear region, the voltage transfer characteristic, i.e. the mathematical relationship between the input and output voltages, is linear. This holds true when the output voltage lies in the range V Vo V. From the definition of voltage gain given above, i.e. V o = A v V i, one can see that this range corresponds to input voltages in the range of V V Vi. In this range the output voltage is directly proportional to the input Av Av voltage, by the factor A v. For input voltages outside this range, the Op Amp is said to be saturated, and its output is bounded by the DC bias voltages. In other words, the output voltage is clamped to V when V i <V /A v and to V when V i >V /A v Characteristics of an Ideal Op Amp 1. R i = : According to the definition of input resistance given above, an infinite input resistance means that no current flows into or out of the input terminals. This greatly simplifies the analysis of Op Amp circuits. 2. R o = 0: In this case the entire dependent source voltage appears across the load resistance or as the input of another device μ =A V = : If the output voltage is to be finite 7 it follows from the definition of voltage gain, that V i = V o / A v will go to zero if A v is infinite. This, however, assumes that there is some way for the input to be affected by the output. Indeed this will only happen if there is such a connection namely a negative feedback mechanism in the form of a connection between the output and the inverting terminal (closed loop operation). If such connection does not exist, then the output will be saturated (open loop operation). For closed loop operation, it is said that a virtual short exists between the positive and negative input terminals 8. This means that if an Op Amp is operating in its linear region (if it is unsaturated) then V i 0 (V i is very close to zero), or 6 This is useful when cascading Op Amps to design amplifier circuits with multiple stages; this topic is covered in connection with cascading of different circuits in Principles of Electrical Engineering II. 7 or rather unsaturated since when V o tries to become larger than V or smaller than V it gets clamped to V or V respectively (or to a constant voltage somewhat less). 8 short because there is no voltage drop but virtual because unlike real shorts there is no current flowing; remember that R i = means that the input current is zero,

5 5 equivalently V p is very close to V n. This also simplifies the circuit calculations at the input terminals, because V p and V n can be represented by a single variable. When one of the two terminals is grounded, then the voltage at both the terminals is zero and the other terminal is called a virtual ground Building Amplifier Circuits Using Op Amps There are two standard closedloop connections for an Op Amp. Both have in common the connection (R f ) from the output terminal to the inverting input terminal. This connection provides the negative feedback and ensures the virtual short. The analysis is simple for ideal Op Amps since: (a) the two input terminals are at the same voltage and (b) there is no current into the input terminals. The analysis usually derives a gain or amplification 9. It is important to note that this is the gain of the whole stage (or the closed loop gain) and should not be confused with the gain of the Op Amp alone 10. One last note: negative feedback does not guarantee that the amplifier will not saturate. If the input is such that the output, based on the amplification of the whole stage, is expected to be larger than the bias voltage in absolute value (V o > V or V o < V ) then the output will be clamped to V (or V ) The Inverting Amplifier R f V1 I 1 R V2 Fig. 4 Inverting Amplifier Circuit analysis of the inverting amplifier in Fig. 4 yields the equation, V 2 = K V 1 = (R f /R)V 1 (Eq. 1) 9 Such analyses can be found in your textbook and of course will be discussed in class. 10 The practice of using μ rather than AV (or simply A) for the open loop gain, and K rather than A for the gain of the whole stage aims at avoiding this confusion; this practice however is not universally used and is not adopted by your textbook. Different text books use different notations. All you need to recognize is that open loop gain of the OpAmp is different from the gain of the entire circuit.

6 6 Thus, the theoretical gain K of the whole stage (that is, the entire Op Amp circuit of Fig 4.) is given by K = V 2 /V 1 = (R f /R) The NonInverting Amplifier V1 R R f V2 Fig. 5 NonInverting Amplifier Circuit analysis of the noninverting amplifier shown in Fig. 5 yields the equation, V 2 = (1R f /R)V 1 (Eq. 2) Thus, the theoretical gain K of the whole stage is given by K = V 2 /V 1 = (1 R f /R) Simulating Op Amps in PSPICE a b c 0 O R a V( a, b ) b R i n μ V( a, b ) c 0 An Ideal OPAMP VCVS Representation Of An Ideal OPAMP Figure 6 Using a VCVS, one can construct a model of the Op Amp for use in PSPICE. The circuit of Fig. 2b can be used to model a nonideal Op Amp using two resistors and a dependent voltage source. The circuit of Fig. 6 can be used for simulating an ideal Op Amp and is derived from Fig. 2b by shorting out the output resistor R o (which is equivalent to setting its value equal to zero) and by picking large values for the input resistor R i and for the Op Amp voltage gain μ (or A). Typical such values for approximating an ideal Op Amp in PSPICE are R i =10 10 and μ =10 6.

7 7 3 Prelab Exercises Theory 3.1 Briefly explain why we assume V p =V n for an ideal Op Amp. What connection has to be present for this to occur? 3.2 What is the gain of an entire amplifier circuit? How is it different from the open loop gain of Op Amp? Experiment Calculate the gain K for the noninverting amplifier circuit in Fig. 8 (from section 4.1 below) assuming that the Op Amp is ideal. 3.4 Calculate the theoretical linear operating range of the input voltage for the circuit in Section Simulate the experimental procedure of Section 4.1 in PSPICE or MULTISIM by choosing 3 different points in the linear operating range, and calculating the circuit gain at each of these points. 3.6 The PSPICE Op Amp model presented in Section does not account for the effects of saturation, so you cannot simulate this portion of the experiment in PSPICE. Describe how you would expect the circuit to behave outside its range of linear operation. Experiment Calculate the gain K for the inverting amplifier circuit in Fig. 9 (from Section 4.2 below) assuming that the Op Amp is ideal. Your answer should be in terms of R and R f. 3.8 Given the results of question 3.7, calculate the values of R and R f that produce a circuit gain of and a voltage V i =.5V with V s =5V. 3.9 Simulate the experimental procedure from Section 4.2 in PSPICE or MULTISIM by choosing 3 different points in the linear operating range, and calculating the circuit gain at each of these points.

The chip layout is shown in Fig. 7. The standard procedure on such chip packages (DIP) is to identify pin 1 as the one to the left of the notch in the chip package. The notch always separates pin 1 from the last pin on the chip. In the case of 741, the notch is between pins 1 and 8. Pins 2, 3, and 6 are the inverting input V n, the noninverting input V p, and the amplifier output V o respectively. These three pins are the only three terminals that usually appear in an Op Amp circuit schematic diagram The null offset pins (1 and 5) provide a way to eliminate any offset in the output voltage of the amplifier. The offset voltage is an artifact of the integrated circuit. The offset voltage is additive with pin V o (pin 6 in this case), and can be either positive or negative and is normally less than 10 mv. Because of its small magnitude, in most cases, one can ignore the contribution of the offset voltage to V o and leave the null offset pins open.

Use the RC Box in place of R var and vary its value so that you can change V i. Take readings for the output voltage V out for values of V i from 3.5V to 3.5V in increments of 0.5V and record them in Table 1. Calculate KV i for each V i using the calculated gain K found in prelab item 3.3 above. Calculate the % error for each row in the table. 12 Notice that this is identical to the noninverting amplifier circuit shown in Fig. 5, except for the voltage divider at the noninverting input terminal whose purpose is to decrease the input voltage and keep the Op Amp from saturating. Also shown are the connections to the DC bias supplies and the pins are labeled with their numbers.

I = Disconnect the ammeter. Keep the input voltage the same as in above. Attach a load resistance between the output terminal of the Op Amp and ground. In so doing one can study the output resistance characteristics of the Op Amp. Place a 10k resistor between the output terminal of the Op Amp and ground and set the supply voltage V s to 5V. Measure the output voltage V out with the DVM, and compare with the results obtained for the same input voltage in item Explain any discrepancies by assuming a nonzero Op Amp output resistance. Later you will be asked to calculate the output resistance of the Op Amp based on these results. V i =. V out =. K = This item involves the study of the relationship between the load resistance and output voltage (and thus also voltage gain). Keeping the

11 11 source voltage at 5V, measure I L (the current through the load resistance R L ) for each value of R L in Table 2. Later, you will be asked to analyze this data.

12 In prelab item 3.7 you should have calculated the values of R f and R that yield a circuit gain of and V i =.5V when V s =5V and R var =20k. Get your TA to check your calculations and correct them if necessary, then build the circuit of Fig. 9 with the correct values of R f and R Use the fixed 5V power supply of the power source for V s. Use the RC Box in place of R var and vary its value so that you can change V i. Take 21 readings for the output voltage V out at each value of V i from 5V in increments of 0.5V and record them in Table 3. Calculate KV i for each V i in Table 3 using the calculated gain K found in prelab item 3.7 above. Calculate the % error for each row in the table. If the measured V out differs from KV i by more than 10% you probably have an error in the circuit. Troubleshoot the circuit until it is operating properly. Table 3 V i K V i V out %Error

13 13 5 Report 5.1 Derive the relationship between the current I and the resistor R f in the noninverter circuit of Fig Compare the theoretical value of the gain K = V out /Vi of both the inverting and the noninverting circuits of Sections 4.1 and 4.2 that you calculated in the prelab exercises with the experimentally obtained values of gain. 5.3 Calculate the theoretical value of the current I for the resistor R f in Section 4.1. Compare with the experimental one. 5.4 Calculate the theoretical values of the current I L in Section for all three values of R L. Compare with the experimental ones. 5.5 Plot the experimental values of I L vs 1/R L in a graph with rectangular coordinates. From your graph, how does your output voltage depend on the load? How does the gain K= V out /V i depend on the load? Note that if V out does not change with the load R L, and since I L = V out (1/R L ), then the slope V out should be constant and the graph of I L vs 1/R L should be a straight line passing through the origin. 5.6 Draw two graphs of V i vs. V out, one for the inverting amplifier circuit and one for the noninverting amplifier circuit (4.1 and 4.2). On each graph identify the transition between saturated and active regions of operation for these amplifier circuits. Label the mode of operation for each of these regions. For the active regions for both circuits, discuss the possible sources of discrepancies between the experimentally obtained value of Vout and the calculated values of KV i. 5.7 Simulate the noninverter circuit of Fig. 8 in PSPICE or MULTISIM for R f = 10k, R var =20 k and R=2.2 k. Find the output voltage Vout and the current I in R f. Assume a or μ A of 741 Op Amp. 5.8 Simulate the noninverter circuit of Fig. 8 in PSPICE or MULTISIM for R f = 10k with the load R L = 10k applied between the output terminal of the OpAmp and the ground. Find the current in R L. 5.9 Simulate the inverter circuit in Fig. 9 in PSPICE or MULTISIM for R f = 10k, R var =20k and R=2.2 k. Find the output voltage V out and the current in R f.
