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.

However when the loopgain remains higher than 1 the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing.

A drastic improvement 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. And this below is my result Simulated for 10sec: This bhbba the error message. The amplitude does not grow any more to infinity. And that will result in a stable amplitude.

Your misconception comes from the fact that you first have to understand the theory of operation of oscillators. Sine generator – Bubba Oscillator Ask Question.

The problem is that i am not able to generate the sinusoidal from the circuit. Zoomed result Simulated for 10sec: By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated nubba of serviceprivacy policy and cookie policyand that your continued use of the website is subject to these policies.

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. In control theory they call it PI controller. It does oscillate, you can see that it does on the right side of the plot. That would be gr I suggest reading about the Barkhausen stability criterion. So the solution to your problem is: Post Your Answer Discard 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.

You have used ideal opamps I suspect and that means that the amplitude of the oscillation will increase and keep increasing. I have seen in practical circuits even a NTC resistor used here.

How to achieve a pure sinusoidal waveform from this bubba oscillator What is needed is a limitation on the output voltage. The controller searches the right gain continuously but has proper inertia which prevents the distortion of the sine pulses. I have the design file I can upload.

Just to add yet another post on this. For the Bubba oscillator this is the case.

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 oecillator. 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. This below is my circuit: What you see is the oscilator starting.

socillator Where did i go wrong? This states that an oscillator oscillates when the loopgain is more than 1. Here’s a circuit that should actually work, using a quad LT and a single power supply rail: Trevor Yeah, strangely enough this oscillator relies on the non-ideal properties of the opamps. This is what is causing an exception
