LT1248 PFC controller has too little gain in current amplifier?

Not open for further replies.



In the LT1248 PFC controller datasheet,
page 7 (bottom left of page) says that the current amplifier of the LT1248 PFC controller should be compensated to have a gain of >250 at twice the line frequency (100Hz).

However, the schematic on page 7 shows that the current amplifier stage there is compensated to have a gain of just 79 at 100Hz.

This is well under 250, so have they got this wrong?

LT1248 datasheet:

Which schematic? Page 11 application circuit has gain of 360 @ 100 Hz.

I did Z(FB)/z(IN)

z(fb) = complex number based on 20k and 1nF (R -J/wC)
Z(IN) = 4K

I did it in excel, then did "imabs" and it came out as 79.
