Write a short report [two to three pages] on an investigation into the operation and performance of this circuit1.
The report should em
ace, as far as you are able, the following themes:
(a) Why the output is taken via the transformer rather than directly off the collector of the transistor.
(b) The agreement between the measured and calculated quiescent voltages on the three terminals of the transistor.

1The circuit model is available in the module’s Learning Materials on Blackboard. In this simulation two extra components, C5/R5, have been added to the left of C2. The added capacitor ca
ies a small initial voltage to act as the necessary noise required to ‘kick start’ the oscillator. The default run time is from 100 to 102 milliseconds. The transformer has been formed from three mutually coupled inductors, rather than using the transformer model. This has been done because the parameter ‘inductance’ can be swept for an inductor in an a.c. analysis. This facility is not available in the transformer model.

(c) The agreement between the measured and calculated frequency of oscillation.
(d) The shape of the output waveform in the first 10 milliseconds of start-up.
(e) The given L1:L2 ratio is not necessarily the optimum value to give a good sinusoidal output. [A Fourier probe on the output will give a spectral response]. Try to devise an experiment to find the optimum ratio*. Express the ratio as a turns ratio.
The report should include copies of any graphical responses produced in the investigation.
*This can be done by performing an AC sweep on the inductance parameter L2. However a sweep cannot be performed without a voltage source in the circuit. For the purposes of this analysis a small voltage source can be inserted into the feedback loop as shown in the second version of the circuit on Blackboard.

Gain without feedback = A
Gain after feedback = A/ 1+ Aβ (β = feedback factor)
A
The overall amplification: Overall amplification decrease
B
Variations in transistor gain:

1
So, Gain = A/Aβ
Gain = 1/β (Gain only depends on β)
So the variation basically gains the transistor that cannot affect the overall transistor gain.
C
Non Linearity:
Non linearity reduces upon applying negative feedback
D
Output Impedance:
Input and output impedance will also improve by a factor of 1+Aβ.
3
Speaker impedance = 8 Ω
Voltage of input signal = 100mv
