Control Applications

After completing this chapter, students should be able to do the following:

•  Model operational amplifier (op-amp) circuits for control applications and specify their model parameters.

•  Design analog behavioral models (ABMs) for signal conditioning applications.

•  Perform analog simulations and analog behavioral modeling of control systems.

•  Perform transient analysis of control systems.

•  Perform worst-case analysis of AC voltage controllers for parametric variations of model parameters and tolerances.

13.1  INTRODUCTION

In practical applications, power converters are normally operated under closed-loop control, which requires comparing the desired output with the actual output. The control implementation requires ...
