THEORY

The operational amplifier (op amp) is a device connected t dc power supplies, +Vcc and Vcc and

having two input terminals, a non-inverting and inverting terminal, generally labelled +v and v,

respectively. The op amp is grounded from the outside. Having A as the open loop gain, the output

voltage Vo depends on Vd = V+ - V- i.e Vo = Avd.

An ideal operational amplifier has infinite open loop gain, infinite input impedance, zero output

impedance, infinite bandwidth, zero offset and zero drift with temperature change. These properties

allow it to amplify input signals with no noise and infinite gain. Practical op amps, however, differ

from the ideal ones in terms of:

I.

Voltage gain

VII.

Bandwidth

II.

Input impedance

VIII.

Output impedance

III.

Input current requirement

IX.

Output current capability

IV.

Slew-rate limiting frequency

X.

V.

Maximum output voltage swing

XI.

Power supply rejection ratio

VI.

Maximum input voltage swing

The difference comes about because practical op amps have several characteristic imperfections.

These include finite gain, finite input resistance and nonzero output resistance. They also include

input bias current, which is a small amount of current that flows into the inputs. This current is

mismatched slightly between the inverting and non-inverting inputs (there is an input offset

current), which generally only affects very low power circuits.

Another characteristics that make practical op amps different from ideal ones are the input offset

voltage, which is the voltage required across the op-amp's input terminals to drive the output

voltage to zero. In the ideal amplifier, there would be no input offset voltage. However, it exists in

actual op-amps because of imperfections in the differential amplifier that constitutes the input stage

of these devices. Input offset voltage creates two problems: First, due to the amplifier's high voltage

gain, it virtually assures that the amplifier output will go into saturation if it is operated without

negative feedback, even when the input terminals are wired together. The second problem created

is that in a closed loop, negative feedback configuration, the input offset voltage is amplified along

with the signal and this may pose a problem if high precision DC amplification is required or if the

input signal is very small as in the experiment.

The other imperfections are common mode gain, a measure of which is the Common Mode

Rejection Ratio (CMRR) as well as temperature drift, which is particularly important a the input

offset voltage level of the circuit.

Operational amplifiers can be inverting or non-inverting. Inverting circuits have the signal input

connected through R1 to the inverting terminal of the op amp and the output terminal connected

back through a feedback resistor R2 to the inverting terminal. The non-inverting terminal of the op

amp is grounded. The gain of non-inverting op amps is negative and is determined by the choice of

resistors only.

Non inverting circuits have the input signal entering at the non-inverting terminal of the op amp

while the inverting terminal is connected to the output through R2 and also to the ground through

R1. The gain of this type of op amp is positive and greater than or equal to one. The input resistance

of the circuit is infinite as the op amp draws no current.

The weighted sum of several voltages in a circuit can be obtained as shown above.

This circuit, called a summing circuit, is an extension of the inverting circuit. It sums the two input

signals and produces the result at the output.

For this application of the op amp, two signals are applied to both inputs. The basic operation is the

amplification of the difference between the two input signals. An ideal difference amplifier would

give zero output for identical signals applied at the two inputs.

The output of this circuit is the integral of the input.

This shows that if the input to the integrating amplifier is a sine function then the output will be a

negative cosine function.

The above expression is an indication that if the input is sine function, the output will be an inverted

cosine function.

PROCEDURE: PART A

PART 1: SUMMING AMPLIFIER

The circuit was connected with Rf = 100 and R1 = R2 = R3 = 100k. Vcc was set to 10V and a 100Hz

sinusoidal waveform was applied as the input that had a peak to peak magnitude of 2V. We

measured the gain of the circuit and used both channels of the scope to verify that the amplifier was

actually summing the input signal before recording our results and drawing input and output

waveforms.

Our component values for the difference amplifier were R1 = 1k and R2 = 10k for the resistances.

With Vcc set to 10V, a 100Hz sinusoidal waveform with 2V peak to peak magnitude was applied as

the input. The gain of the circuit was measured and both channels of the scope were used to verify

that the output was a function of the difference of the input signals applied. Input and output

waveforms were also drawn.

An integrator circuit was constructed with Rin = 10k, Rf = 100k, C = 0.1F. Vcc was set to 10V and

a 100Hz square waveform was applied. This waveform had a peak to peak magnitude of 2V. We used

both channels of the scope to verify that the input was being integrated and finished this section of

the experiment by sketching our input and output waveforms.

The circuit was connected with Rs = 100, Rf = 10k, and C = 0.1F. Vcc was set to 10V and a

triangular waveform was applied that had a peak to peak magnitude of 2V. We used both channels

of the scope to verify that the amplifier was actually differentiating the input signal before recording

our results and drawing input and output waveforms.

PART B: SIMULATION

For the first part of the simulation, we derived the output equation for the inverting summing

amplifier circuit shown below. We then generated the output voltage waveform using multisim for

V1, a sine wave of 1Vpp and a DV voltage, V2 of 5V. The curve was then plotted out as a function of

amplitude vs time.

The second part of the simulation involved deriving the output equation of the difference amplifier

shown below and then generating the waveform of the output voltage using multisim for a sinewave

of 1Vpp together with a DC voltage, V2 of 5V.

The differentiation and integration functions of the op amp were explored by simulating the waves

of 100Hz, 2Vpp that were used for the integrator and differentiator respectively and our results and

output waveforms are given below.

DISCUSSION

The results obtained were close to the theoretically anticipated values. There were,

however, small differences between the practical and theoretical values. This is due to the

fact that practical operational amplifiers have several characteristic imperfections that

cannot be attributed to idea op amps. These include finite gain, finite input resistance, input

bias current, input offset voltage, common mode gain and temperature drift.

Systematic errors in our experiment set up could also have contributed to the results

obtained. These usually include internal impedances within the function generator, wires

and other equipment. Other errors include random errors, which resulted in some outlying

output values for our waveforms, as well as human error in the approximation of waveform

amplitudes, although this was generally mitigated by checking our values with a multimeter.

CONCLUSION

Operational amplifiers are among the most versatile and widely used circuits in several

applications in electrical engineering. We studied the uses of practical op amps and the

effects of their characteristics that set them apart from ideal operational amplifiers in terms

of performance. The experiment was successful as the objectives were met.
