Dear all,

Anyone could explain to myself why should Draw Frequency Response Curve.
Hope to hear from you all soon

Thanks.

We draw frequency response curve to see how something responds at different frequecies.

There are quite a number of frequency responses depending on what you take as the excitation and the response. You normally plot the frequency response of a transfer function (which equals the ratio of response/excitation).

One important use of the frequency response is to figure out if a closed-loop system is stable or not. For this we use the loop gain frequency response. From the loop gain transfer function, we look at things like the phase margin and gain margin which will tell us if the closed loop system is stable or not. And if the system is stable, it will tell us how far away we are from being unstable.

If you search the EDAboard for "Bode" "phase margin" and "gain margin", you will find a number of discussions on these topics.

Best regards,
v_c

You can also use the frequency responce diagrams in the design / specification of filters. This is a very useful tool in that regard.

Cheers,

We majorily use the frequency response curves to see how the gain , input impedence , output impedence of different circuits change with the different frequencies

EVERY SUBSTANCE ON THIS EARTH WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT RESPONSE FOR DIFFERENT FREQUENCIES. THE PERFORMANCE AND GENERAL HEALTHINESS OF THE CIRCUIT/OBJECT/BODY CAN BE JUDGED BY DRAWING A FREQUENCE RESPONSE CURVE/DIAGARM. STABLE AND LINEAR RESPONSE WILL BE CONFINED TO CERTAIN BAND OF FREQUENCIES WHICH WE GENERALLY TERM IT AS BANDWIDTH.

fre.respense give information about how the system/circuit responds for different frequencies....

Such as v_c'post, from the frequency response curve we can analysis whether the closed loop system is stable or not under the condition of circuit spec. The PM and GM is the most keypoint which should be obtained in the frequency response curve.

The frequency response is very usefull and required in some situations for example if u designing a filter circuit u need the frequency response to determine the bandwidth limits of that filter by plotting the output of the filter in db against the frequency

To check the circuit you design is working for what frequency range (bandwidth) , to measure input & output impedance vs freq and also to check to system stability as others posted.
