bubba oscillator

Surprisingly, such a “hard-limiting” will cause only a slight distortion because the loop will adjust itself to a loop gain of unity. Email Required, but never shown. Such an oscillator with real opamps will stabilise its signal amplitude on buba point where the loopgain is precisely one. Post as a guest Name.

Here’s the output from LTSpice: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Here’s a circuit that should actually work, using a quad LT and a single power supply rail: What you see is the oscilator starting. Where did i go wrong? Your misconception comes from the fact that you first have to understand the theory of operation of oscillators. For the Vubba oscillator this is the case. Bimpelrekkie – that is not the case. It has started to oscillate. After setting sec as simulation time, the amplitude goes to infinity and at around 51 sec, Derivative of state at time oscillato That’s what your plot shows.


This is what is causing an exception In the article about the Bubba oscillator the author uses real opamps. By real op-ampsdo you mean finite gain op-amp?

However when the loopgain remains higher than 1 the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep oscillatof. How to achieve a pure sinusoidal waveform from this bubba oscillator No I do mean finite gain opamps, but try it and see if it helps, it won’t. I have seen in practical circuits even a NTC resistor used here. The simulation will be stopped.

The only property which is important is an amplitude limitation due to the power supply rails. What is needed is a limitation on the output voltage. And that means the loopgain becomes smaller.

Sorry, i am quite new at electronics In control theory they call it PI controller.

These opamps cannot generate infinite voltages so at some voltage their output voltage will be less than what you would ideally expect. You should be able to replicate similar results in your own simulator. The controller searches the right gain continuously but has proper inertia which prevents the distortion of the sine pulses.

What happens after that So sorry to bug you, i am using MATLAB b, can you upload the file in previous version if oscillatir not much trouble, if not, never mind. That would be gr The problem is that i am not able to generate the sinusoidal from the circuit. Here’s a circuit that should actually work, using a quad LT and a single power supply rail:. And this below is my result Simulated for 10sec: The amplitude does not grow any more to infinity.


Sign up using Facebook. Zoomed result Simulated for 10sec: Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. So the solution to your problem is: Simulation is stopped when some current, pscillator or internal variable reaches the limit of the available number range.

This below is my circuit: Trevor Yeah, strangely enough this oscillator relies on the non-ideal properties of the opamps. It needs a voltage contolled component which has variable gain, attenuation or resistance. I suggest reading about the Barkhausen stability criterion. Take a couple of zener diodes connected in series having the anodes against each other. You have used ideal opamps I suspect and that means that the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing.

Multisim and Ultiboard

The amplitude grows exponentially. This is not a good solution if you need low distortion sinewave. A good analog sinewave oscillator has a specially designed contol circuit which checks the output amplitude and reduces the gain until output amplitude is the wanted.

This effect cannot be found in the literature. But this will probably result in a distorted sinewave.
