Feedback and Control Continuous-time feedback has many applications. Examples: improve performance of an op amp circuit. control position of a motor. reduce sensitivity to unwanted parameter variation. reduce distortions. stabilize unstable systems magnetic levitation inverted pendulum

Feedback and Control Reducing sensitivity to unwanted parameter variation. Example: power amplifier F 0 MP3 player power amplifier 8 < F 0 < 12 speaker Changes in F 0 (due to changes in temperature, for example) lead to undesired changes in sound level.

Feedback and Control Feedback can be used to compensate for parameter variation. F 0 MP3 player K β + power amplifier 8 < F 0 < 12 speaker X Y H ( s ) = KF 0 1 + βKF 0 If K is made large, so that βKF 0 ± 1 , then H ( s ) 1 β independent of K or F 0 !

Feedback and Control Feedback reduces the change in gain due to change in F 0 . F 0 MP3 player 100 1 10 + 8 < F 0 < 12 X Y 0 10 20 0 10 20 8 < F 0 < 12 F 0 GaintoSpeaker F 0 (no feedback) 100 F 0 1 + 100 F 0 10 (feedback)

Check Yourself F 0 MP3 player K β + power amplifier 8 < F 0 < 12 speaker X Y Feedback greatly reduces sensitivity to variations in K or F 0 . lim K →∞ H ( s ) = KF 0 1 + βKF 0 1 β What about variations in β ? Aren’t those important?

Check Yourself What about variations in β ? Aren’t those important? The value of β is typically determined with resistors, whose values are quite stable (compared to semiconductor devices).

Feedback can compensate for parameter variation even when the variation occurs rapidly. Example: using transistors to amplify power. MP3 player
