Golden Rules

From Class Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

When analyzing operational amplifiers, there are a few rules that need to be taken into consideration in order to solve circuits using KVL or KCL.

  1. Because the output voltage does not depend on the output current, the output impedance equals zero.
  2. The input impedance Z_+=Z_-=0.
  3. When there is a negative feedback, both inputs have the same voltage. In other words, V_+ is equal to V_-.
  4. When solving circuits using the nodal analysis, write node equations at V_+ and V_-, but not at V_o.
