Theory: Common Emitter amplifier has the emitter terminal as the common
terminal between input and output terminals. The emitter base junction is forward
biased and collector base junction is reverse biased, so that transistor remains in
active region throughout the operation. When a sinusoidal AC signal is applied at
input terminals of circuit during positive half cycle the forward bias of base emitter
junction V
BE
is increased resulting in an increase in I
B
,The collector current I
c
is
increased by times the increase in I
B,
V
CE
is correspondingly decreased. i.e output
voltage gets decreased. Thus in a CE amplifier a positive going signal is converted
into a negative going output signal i.e..180
o
phase shift is introduced between output
and input signal and it is an amplified version of input signal.

Theory: In common source amplifier circuit source terminal is made common to
the other two terminals. In common source amplifier circuit input is applied between
gate and source and output is taken from drain and source. The coupling capacitors
C
1
and C
2
are used to isolate the D.C biasing from the applied ac signal, and acts as
short circuit for the ac analysis. The high frequency characteristics of the FET
amplifier are determined by the interelectrode and wiring capacitance.
The CS amplifier which provides good voltage amplification is most
frequently used. In cascade amplifier input impedance of the second stage acts as
shunt across output of first stage and R
d
is shunted by C
i
. Since the reactance
decreases with increasing frequencies, the output impedance will be low at high
frequencies, this will result in decreasing the gain at high frequencies.

Theory: The circuit diagram of Wien bridge oscillator is given in figure .The
circuit consists of a two stage RC coupled amplifier which provides a phase shift of
360 or 0. A balanced bridged is used as the feed back network which has no need to
provide any additional phase shift. The feed back network consists of lead-lag
network(R1-C1 and R2-C2) and a voltage divider (R3-R4). The leadlag network
provides positive feed back to the input of first stage and the voltage divider provides
a negative feed back to the emitter of Q1.

Theory: RC phase shift oscillators are more suitable oscillators as they occupy
less space. RC phase shift oscillator can be achieved by two means,
1. RC phase shift oscillator using cascade of high pass filters.
2. RC phase shift oscillator using cascade of low pass filters.

If values of R and C are chosen that every RC section provides a phase shift of 60
o
.
thus theoretically RC ladder network produces a total phase shift of 180
0
between
input and output voltages for the given frequency. Therefore at a specified frequency

a. The gain of the internal amplifier in the RC phase shift oscillator must be >=29
In order to produce un damped oscillations.
4. What is the effect of V
CC
, R & C values on output?
a. When V
CC
is applied current through R
c
in creases because of biasing. This
charging the capacitor C and increases the voltage across R.The voltage across
each RC is exactly 60
0
out of phase. Thus total phase shift of 180
0
is obtained
across last combination which is fed to the input of an amplifier produces another
phase shift of 180
0
.Thus total 360

or 0

phase shift is obtained.
5. How to vary the frequency in worse and fine ways?

Theory: The power amplifier is said to be class A amplifier if the Q point is
selected in such a way that output signal is obtained for a full input cycle. For class A
power amplifier position of Q point is at the centre of mid point of load line. For all
values of input signals the transistor remains in the active region and never enters
into the cut off or saturation region. When an ac signal is applied, the collector
current flows for 360
0
of the input cycle. In other words, the angle of collector current
flow is 360
0
i.e... One full cycle. Here signal is faithfully reproduced at the output
without any distortion. This is an important feature of class A operation. The
efficiency of class A operation is very low with resistive load and is 25%. This can be
increased to 50% by using inductive load. In the present experiment inductive load is
used.

Theory: In complementary symmetry class B power amplifier one is p-n-p and
other transistor is n-p-n. In the positive half cycle of input signal the transistor Q
1
gets
driven into active region and starts conducting. The same signal gets applied to the
base of the Q
2
. it ,remains in off condition, during the positive half cycle. During the
negative half cycle of the signal the transistor Q
2
p-n-p gets biased into conduction.
While Q
1
gets driven into cut off region. Hence only Q
2
conducts during negative half
cycle of the input, producing negative half cycle across the load.

Theory:
In class C amplifier, the Q point and input signal are selected such that the output
signal is obtained for less than a half cycle, for a full wave input. Due to such a
selection of Q point, transistor remains active , for less than a half cycle, For
remaining cycle of input cycle, the transistor remains cut off and no signal is
produced at the output. When a class C amplifier is connected to a parallel tuned
circuit, there fore the output voltage is maximum at the resonant frequency. The
resonant frequency for parallel tuned circuit is given by f
r
= 1/2 LC .
Tuned Amplifiers are used at radio frequencies. The amplifier consists of LC
Circuit for tuning certain frequency. The resonant frequency of lc circuit is equal to
input frequency.

Theory: A regulator is an electronic circuit which maintains a constant output
irrespective of change in input voltage, load resistance and change in temperature.
Series voltage regulator is one type of regulator. If in a voltage regulator circuit , the
control element is connected in series with the load ,then the circuit is called series
voltage regulator circuit. The unregulated d.c voltage is the input to the circuit. The
control element controls the input voltage, that gets to the output. The sampling
circuit provides the necessary feed back signal. The comparator circuit compares the
feed back with the reference voltage to generate appropriate control signal. In a

Theory: The two transistors are biased to work in class-B operation. This
increases the power efficiency of the circuit. When the signal is applied, the
transformer Q
1
works as a phase splitter. It produces two signals (for the two
transistors) which are equal in magnitude but opposite in phase. During positive half-
cycle of the input signal, the base of the transistor Q
1
is driven positive..so,it will be in
the conducting state. The base of the transistor Q2 is driven negative. It remains cut-
off. Current i
c1
flows, but i
c2
is zero. During the negative half cycle of the input signal,
the opposite happens. Q2 conducts, but Q1 does not.

Procedure:
1. Connect the circuit as per the circuit diagram

2. Connect the required supply from the regulated R.P.S
3. Feed the AC signal at the I/p and keep the frequency at 1 KHz . connect the
power o/p meter at the o/p. Change the o/p impedance in steps for each
value of impedance and note down the o/p power.
4. Plot a graph between o/p power and load impedance. From this graph find
the impedance for which the output power is maximum. This is the value of
5. Select load impedance which is equal to optimum load. See the wave form of
the output on C.R.O.
6. Calculate the conversion efficiency..

Precautions:

1. Connections should be made care fully.
2. Take the readings with out parallax error.

Inferences: A Class B power Amplifier with a maximum efficiency of 76.6 % at 37
ohms by using simulation. and a maximum efficiency of 45.04 % at 1K ohms by using
Hardware.

Result: The class B power amplifier is designed .Both the simulation and hardware
results are verified and compared.

1. What are the advantages of class B power amplifier?

a. 1. Harmonic distortion is low.
2. Efficiency is much higher than class A operation.
3. Impedance matching is possible due to transformer.
2. What is the period of conduction in class B power amplifier?

a. 180
0
3. How is the cross over distortion eliminated?

a. To eliminate the cross over distortion, the two transistors of a push-pull are slightly
Forward biased so that the circuit works in class-AB.
