Week-7 LAB#3 To Study the Performance of Negative Feedback Amplifier Using Op-amp Prelab Work (4 %) Each prelab report must have a title, date, your name, lab partner name, procedures how the prelab was done, hardware, software and components used. *PreLab report must be completed and submitted at the beginning of lab session to be examined before doing the laboratory work. PRELAB QUESTIONS 1. a. An amplifier has an open loop gain of 105. Determine the gain as a negative feedback is applied with feedback factor  = 0.01. b. An amplifier has an open loop gain of 2 x 104. When a negative feedback is applied, the gain has reduced to 40. Find the negative feedback factor. PRELAB SIMULATION with LTspice 2. a. What is the type of negative feedback used by the op-amp circuit in Fig. 1? Determine V the gain expression o of the circuit without RL. Vs b. Use LTspice and prepare a schematic circuit as shown in Fig. 1 and choose each resistor to an equal value of 10 kΩ. Use the peak value 1 V (vs-p), 1 kHz ac input signal of VS. Simulate the circuit and plot the waveform of VO and VS, measure the Vo  p peak value of Vo-p and Vs-p and compute from the plot and calculate voltage gain Vs  p

c. d. e. f.

Vo obtained in part (a). Vs Repeat the simulation of part (b) for four different values of Vs-p and keeping RL at constant value. Repeat the simulation of part (b) for four different values of RL and keeping Vs-p at a constant value. Vo  p V Compare the results of obtained from simulation with the calculated value o Vs  p Vs from the amplifier circuit without RL. What is your conclusion on amplifier with feedback performance based on the results obtained in part (b) to (e)?
