Low-Cost Alternative to a Function Generator: The Bubba Oscillator by Phillip Johnston. 4 March Introduction. When testing the functionality of a circuit or . 12 Feb Hi guys, I simulated a bubba oscillator, but the circuit output is 6Vdc, it don’t oscillate. Can you help me? Pspice frequency = 60hz The. Solved: Hi there. I’m trying to make a sine wave inverter based on “Bubba Oscillator”. The output of the bubba oscillator is a nice sine.

## Multisim and Ultiboard

Just to add yet another post on this. Set more time for the simulation. Sign up using Email and Password. It has started to oscillate. It needs a voltage contolled component which has variable gain, attenuation or resistance.

By real op-ampsdo you mean finite gain op-amp?

Your misconception comes from the fact that you first have to understand the theory of operation of oscillators. 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.

And that will result buubba a stable amplitude. What you see is the oscilator starting.

Sign up using Facebook. That would be gr Insert that limiting circuit in parallel with one of the capacitors. No I do mean finite gain opamps, but try it and see if it helps, it won’t.

These opamps cannot generate infinite voltages so at some voltage their osciillator voltage will be less than what you would ideally expect.

And this below is my result Simulated for 10sec: Take a couple of zener diodes connected in series having the anodes against gubba other.

Where did i go wrong? You should be able to replicate similar results in your own simulator. By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated terms of serviceprivacy policy and cookie policyand that your continued use of the website is subject to these policies.

I have the design file I can upload. For the Bubba oscillator this is the case. 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. Here’s the output from LTSpice: Here’s a circuit that should actually work, using a quad LT and a single power supply rail: If you zoom in on the left side you should also see the oscillation but at a much smaller amplitude.

However when the loopgain remains higher than 1 the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

This is not that easy to model I know, I have tried. So the solution to your problem is: Trevor Yeah, strangely enough this oscillator relies on the non-ideal properties osclllator the opamps. The amplitude does not grow any more to infinity. What happens after that In the article about the Bubba oscillator the author uses real opamps. Oscilllator problem is that i am not able to generate the sinusoidal from the circuit. And that means the loopgain becomes smaller.

This is the error message. This states that an oscillator oscillates when the loopgain is more than 1.

### Circuit Collection : Oscillators

A drastic oscillatlr reduction of distortion is possible when we use two different supply 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.

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. After setting sec as simulation time, the amplitude goes to infinity and at around 51 sec, Derivative of state at time Such an oscillator with real opamps will stabilise its signal amplitude on the point where the loopgain is bubbba one.

This effect cannot be found in the literature. Zoomed result Simulated for 10sec: Unfortunately I havent Matlab nor Simulink, only washy low-cost imitations, but it works there. Surprisingly, such a “hard-limiting” will cause only a slight distortion because the loop will adjust itself to a loop gain of unity.
