Re: Loopgain calculation
Are you familiar with the loop gain definition?
Do you know how you would measure/simulate the loop gain function?

Re: Loopgain calculation
thanks
i read a file about loopgain and also i know from control lesson that A(CLOSE LOOP)= A(openloop)/[1+B.A(openloop)].
and the multiplication of B.A(OPENLOOP) is called loop_gain

Re: Loopgain calculation
So  the question remains: What is "B" in your circuit?
What is the name of the quantity "B"?

Re: Loopgain calculation
So  the question remains: What is "B" in your circuit?
G = C*A/(1 + A*B)
signs are a matter of convention, assuming positive A and B you get
B = R1/(R1 + R2)
C = R2/(R1+ R2)
   Updated   
To be done: derivation of open loop amplifier gain A

Re: Loopgain calculation
hi
i thinked befor that for obtaining loop gain , we had to multiply B(feedback factor) and A_O(open loop gain). BUT I KNOW IT IS NOT RIGHT.
Thanks for answers

Re: Loopgain calculation
In fact it is right.

Re: Loopgain calculation
Respectfully  there is no loop in the ckt.

Re: Loopgain calculation
The circuit has internal feedback, one of the possible readings is that its loop gain should be calculated, see analysis in post #5.

Re: Loopgain calculation
is there is some marginal internal feedback?  nope. Loop gain refers to gain around the complete loop, there is no ckt shown to complete the loop.
what you are seeking is the forward transfer function of input to output with specified load.

Re: Loopgain calculation
Consider a setup without additional external feedback, e.g. Vin connected to a voltage source. Then the internal feedback through R2 (feedback factor R1/(R1 +R2) ) is the only feedback in this circuit. It's not "marginal" but  among other parameters  determining the circuit gain. A loop gain can be calculated.

Re: Loopgain calculation
The two transistors can be used as a linear amplifier.
The same applies to an opamp.
However, the problem in both cases is that  without negative feedback  there will be no usable DC bias point in the middle of the quasilinear region.
(I know  the reason for the missing bias point may be not the same...but this is not of any importance with respect to the subject under discussion).
Therefore, we use two resistors (forming a simple voltage divider) for feeding back a part of the developped output voltage to the inverting input.
However, it is to be mentioned that  in the circuit under discussion  there must be 100% feedback for DC (CMOS inverter with Dcin=DCout).
Therefore, an additional capacitor at the input will be necessary. This results in a feedback factor k=1 for DC (no DC current through R2) and k=R1/(R1+R2) for AC.
For calculating the gain of the complete circuit, we are using the classical formula for the closedloop gain of an amplifier with feedback (given in post#5): G=C*A/(1+A*B).
Easy peasy  anythig wrong ?

Re: Loopgain calculation
R2 provides degeneraton  a loop requires connection to the actual input ...

Re: Loopgain calculation
What is an "actual input"? What is your definition? The CMOS inverter has only one single input node  the common node for both gates.
Is there any doubt that R2 is connected between output and input?
As an example, consider the noninverting opamp configuration.
The feedback path is connected to the inverting input  and the "actual" input (do you mean: signal input?) is the noninv. opamp terminal.
The circuit under discussion shows the classical negative feedback scheme.
(by the way  "degeneration" is nothing else than negative feedback; see the "degeneration resistor" RE in the emitter path of a common emitter gain stage).

Re: Loopgain calculation
I had a professor in undergrad who absolutely insisted that simple circuits like this be analyzed in terms of shunt/series feedback systems. What fun we had, spending half an hour analyzing calculating the gain of an inverting opamp amplifier, which could be solved in seconds using KVL and KCL.
For more info on this horribly inefficient and outdated method of analysis, see: http://cc.ee.nchu.edu.tw/~aiclab/tea...cs3/lect08.pdf
