Part C-Filters and Oscillator Simulations

 

1.   The circuit below is a two-pole high-pass Butterworth filter.  The upper critical frequency should be 1.12kHz.  Find the required value for R4 and the closed loop gain. Verify the circuit operation in Multisim. Make the necessary changes to the circuit and verify its operations.  The Multisim file (ECT246_Week_6_Two_high_trouble.ms) can be found in Doc Sharing, week 7.

 

The R4 value should be _______; Acl = ___________

 

 

 

 

2.   Given the following circuit.  What is the frequency of oscillation?  What is the closed loop gain?  The Multisim circuit (ECT246_Week_6_Wien2.ms) can be found in Doc Sharing, week 6.

 

= __________

 

= __________

 

At what value of   does the output begin to clip? __________

 

At what value of  does oscillation stop? _________

 

 

 

          1                 56mV          320mV        5.71            15.1

          10               64mV          320mV        5                 14

          100             112mV        1.28V          11.42          21.15

          1k               112mV        1.28V          11.42          21.15

          10k             160mV        1.20V          7.5              17.5

          100k                                                  3                 9.54

After plotting the graph we need to go below 100 Hz and read the frequency that the gain is 8.1. This is f1

Then go above 1k until the gain is 8.1 and read that frequency. This is f2

This is semi log paper, note the bottom horizontal scale is frequency, and always gets 10 times larger on the next decade. There are no zeros on the graph.  10^0 = 1 so that is the first number, 10^1 = 10 so we jump from counting 1’s to counting 10’s, for example 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 20,30 etc.

The vertical scale is gain in decibels and uses a linear scale.

The point plotted is a frequency of 10 hertz and a gain of 7 db.
