Purpose

To introduce the Operational

Amplifier by providing background,
functionality, applications, and
relevance to Electric Power class
projects.
Introduction
Operational Amplifiers are
represented both schematically
and realistically below:
◦ Active component!
Background
Originallyinvented in early 1940s
using vacuum tube technology.
◦ Initial purpose was to execute math
operations in analog electronic
calculating machines
Shrunk in size with invention of
transistor
Most now made on integrated
circuit (IC)
◦ Only most demanding applications use
discrete components
Huge variety of applications, low
Amplifiers
Single-ended  Differential Amplifier
Amplifier ◦ Amplifies difference
between inputs
Operational Amplifier
Output gain high
◦ A ~= 106
Tiny difference in the
input voltages result
in a very large output
voltage
◦ Output limited by
supply voltages
Comparator
◦ If V+ > V- , Vout =
HVS
◦ If V+ < V- , Vout =
LVS
3-stage Op-Amp
Why are they useful?
Sensor signals are often too weak
or too noisy
◦ Op Amps ideally increase the signal
amplitude without affecting its other
properties.
Why are they useful?

Negative feedback leads to stable

equilibrium
Voltage follower (direct feedback)
◦ If Vout = V- , then V out ~ V+
Closed Loop Transfer
Function
H(s) = A / (1 +
AF)
…When AF >> 1

H(s) = 1 / F

Where: A = Op Amp Open Loop

Gain
F = Feedback Loop Gain
Op Amp Golden Rules

1.The output attempts to do

whatever is necessary to make the
voltage difference between the
inputs zero.
2.The inputs draw no current.

controller
Example #1: Voltage
Comparator

is = 0 i1 = 0

i2 = 0

When Vs is equal to 0V, Vo = 0V.

When Vs is smaller than 0V, Vo = V+.
When Vs is larger than 0V, Vo = V-.
Electronic Response
Given how an op amp functions,
what do you expect Vo to be if v2
= 5V when:
1. Vs = 0V?
2. Vs = 5V?
3. Vs = 6V?
Pulse Width Modulator

inputs until a threshold is
. reached

Filters
• Decouple the low-pass
RC filter from the load.

Uses: Simple audio.

Remove frequencies
over 20kHz (audible)
Low-pass Filter (active)

Cutoff

Thisworks
because the
capacitor
needs time to
charge.
High pass filter (active)

Band-pass filter cascades both high-pass and low-pas

Op-Amps are often used for
◦ Sensor amplification
◦ Mathematical operations (sums,
difference, inverse)
◦ Filters (High/Low/Band pass)
◦ Measurement devices
Current in –> Voltage out
