I have seen in practical circuits even a NTC resistor used here.

Bimpelrekkie – that is not the case. Zoomed result Simulated for 10sec: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. I suggest reading about the Barkhausen stability criterion.

Here’s a circuit that should actually work, using a quad LT and a single power supply rail:. This is not that easy to model I know, I have tried. This is not a good solution if you need low distortion sinewave.

Socillator effect cannot be found in the literature. Trevor Yeah, strangely enough this oscillator relies on the non-ideal properties of the opamps. Email Required, but never shown. And that means the loopgain becomes smaller. So sorry to bug you, i am using MATLAB b, can you upload the file in previous version if thats not much trouble, if not, never mind.


In control theory they call it PI controller. That would be gr But this will probably result bibba a distorted sinewave. A drastic improvement reduction of distortion is possible when we use two different oscillatorr rail voltage pairs and when the ouput is taken from the block with the larger supply voltage limiting effect in the block with smaller supply voltages.

If you zoom in on the left side you should also see the oscillation but at a much smaller amplitude.

The problem is that i am not able to generate the sinusoidal from the circuit. How to achieve a pure sinusoidal waveform from this bubba oscillator Here’s a circuit that should actually work, using a quad LT and a single power supply rail: This states that an oscillator oscillates when the loopgain is more than 1.

You have used ideal opamps I suspect and that means that the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing. What is needed is a limitation on the output voltage. 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.

Such an oscillator with real opamps will stabilise its signal amplitude on the point where the loopgain is precisely one. However when the loopgain remains higher than 1 the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing. Set more time for the simulation. And this below is my result Simulated for 10sec: I have the design file I can upload.


Post as a guest Name. What happens after that By real op-ampsdo you mean finite gain op-amp? Take a couple of zener diodes connected in series having the anodes against each other. The simulation will be stopped.

Insert that limiting circuit in parallel with one of osillator capacitors. That’s what your plot shows. No I do mean finite gain opamps, but try it and see if it helps, it won’t. So the solution to your problem is: This is what is causing an exception Sign up using Email and Password. The amplitude grows exponentially.

Sine generator – Bubba Oscillator Ask Question. Sorry, i am quite new at electronics The controller searches the right gain continuously but has proper inertia which prevents the distortion of the sine pulses. The only property which is important is an amplitude limitation due to the power supply rails.

In the article about the Bubba oscillator the author uses real opamps. What you see is the oscilator starting.
