op amp – Sine generator – Bubba Oscillator – Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange

Bimpelrekkie – that is not the case. I have the design file I can upload. The amplitude grows exponentially.

However when the loopgain remains higher than 1 the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing. What you see is the oscilator starting. Insert that oscilltor circuit in parallel with one of the capacitors.

Sign up using Facebook. I suggest reading about the Barkhausen stability criterion.

No I do mean finite gain opamps, but try it and see if it helps, it won’t. Email Required, but never shown.


Solved: Bubba Oscillator as a sine wave inverter – Discussion Forums – National Instruments

Your misconception comes from the fact that you first have to understand the theory of operation of oscillators. That would be gr If you zoom in on the left side you should also see the oscillation but at a much smaller amplitude.

In the article about the Bubba oscillator the author uses real opamps. So the solution to your problem is: After setting sec as simulation time, the amplitude goes to infinity and at around 51 sec, Derivative of state at time This is the error message. The problem is that i am not able to generate the sinusoidal osscillator the circuit.

The simulation will be stopped. That’s what your plot shows. The controller searches the right gain continuously but has proper inertia which prevents the distortion of the sine pulses. What is needed is a limitation on the output voltage. Here’s a circuit that should actually work, using a quad LT and a single power supply rail: Simulation is stopped when some current, voltage or internal variable reaches the limit of the available number range.

You should be able to replicate similar results in your own simulator. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. The amplitude does not grow any more to infinity. Oscilllator have seen in practical circuits even a NTC resistor used here.

Multisim and Ultiboard

In control theory they call it PI controller. This below is my circuit: And this below is my result Simulated for 10sec: Just to add yet another post on this.

You have used ideal opamps I suspect and that means that the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing. Here’s the output from LTSpice: This states that an oscillator oscillates when the loopgain is more than 1.
