As ICs created with the operational amplifier can be easily handled, operate well in normal conditions but some faults exist in these modules with the passage of time. One category if the inner fault is the state when the output of the operational amplifier is in saturation region which causes the high or low level at output irrespective of variation in the input signal.
With that there is different types of element damaging occurs that cause different types of faults in circuits using an operational amplifier. In today’s post, we will discuss about these faults and learn how to troubleshoot these faults. So let’s get started with How to Troubleshoot OP-Amp Circuits.
How to Troubleshoot OP-Amp Circuits
- The below figure describes the inner fault of comparator circuitry which generates stuck results.
Symptoms of Outer Component Failures in Comparator Circuits
- The comparator circuit having Zener grounding and hysteresis configure is drawn in the below figure.
- For damaging of the operational amplifier the Zener diode or any resistance can be damaged.
- For instance, assume that there is one diode that has an open circuit. It causes the separation of both Zener diode and circuitry will operate like an unbounded comparator. It can be seen in the below figure denoted as a.
- In the case of short circuit diode, the output is restricted at the value of Zener voltage and has only a single direction according to diode that is operating it is shown in figure denoted as b.
- In the case of other directions, the voltage at the output is forward diode voltage.
- Let us assume that resistance R2 is an open circuit so the voltage at the output terminal will move back to the non-inverting terminal and as the voltage at the input is not larger than the output voltage the component will retain its bounded condition.
- This situation causes faults in an operational amplifier.
- Now suppose that resistance R1 is an open circuit it causes the noninverting input close to the grounded potential and it results in the circuitry to work like 0 level detector. Both of these states are shown in the figure denoted as c and d.
Symptoms of Element Damaging in Summing Amplifiers
- If any resistance at the input terminal has unit gain than the summing amplifier circuit will get opens and the output will decrease to the general value through the quantity of voltage given at the input terminal which is open circuit.
- the net output voltage will be the addition of other remaining input voltage.
- If the gain of the summing amplifier is nonunity then open input resistance results in the output to decrease the general value by the quantity that is equal to the multiple gain with the voltage at an input in case of an open circuit.
So friends that is a detailed post about How to Troubleshoot OP-Amp Circuits I have explained each and every parameter related to this post. IF you have any further query ask in the comments. Thanks for reading
