Op-amp in closed loop configuration
Op-amp is in closed loop configuration when there is a connection either direct or via another network exist between the input and output terminals.We can control the gain of op-amp if we introduce a modification in the basic circuit.This modification involves a feedback ie the input signal is fed back to the input either direct or via another network.
Different feedback configurations
An op-amp that uses feedback is called a feedback amplifier.A feedback amplifier is sometimes referred to as a closed loop amplifier because the feedback forms a closed loop between the input and the output.A close loop amplifier can be represented by using two blocks one for op-amp and the other for a feedback circuit.These connections are classified according to whether the voltage or current is fed back to the input in series or parallel.
- Voltage series feedback
- Voltage shunt feedback
- Current series feedback
- Current shunt feedback.
