RC PHASE SHIFT OSCILLATOR

Aim: To determine the frequency of oscillations of an RC Phase shift oscillator. Apparatus Required: RC phase shift oscillator kit Theory:
In the RC phase shift oscillator, the combination RC provides self-bias for the amplifier. The phase of the signal at the input gets reverse biased when it is amplified by the amplifier. The output of amplifier goes to a feedback network consists of three identical RC sections. Each RC section provides a phase shift of 600. Thus a total of 1800 phase shift is provided by the feedback network. The output of this circuit is in the same phase as the input to the amplifier. The frequency of oscillations is given by

Procedure:
1. Connect the circuit as shown in Fig A. 2. Switch on the power supply. 3. Connect the CRO at the output of the circuit. 4. Adjust the RE to get undistorted waveform. 5. Measure the Amplitude and Frequency. 6. Compare the theoretical and practical values. 7. Plot the graph amplitude versus frequency
