SOLUTIONS
a). Designing a two stage low pass filter with a d.c gain of 8, a bandwidth of 2000 Hz and a suitable roll- off rate (dB/dec);
* Choose two low pass filters with a roll-off rate of -20 dB/dec. These two low pass filters will be cascaded to give a roll-off rate of -40dB/dec, each contributing 20dB/dec.
* The Op-Amp, an active component, is used to ensure that a cut-off of -3dB is achieved.
* The passive components of the circuit will consist of resistors and capacitors. To obtain a d.c gain of 8, the d.c gain of filter A is set to 2 and that of filter B to 4. The two d.c gains are multiplied to give the desired d.c gain of 8.
b). Drawing the circuit;
Analysing how the specifications will be achieved;
A). Analysis of the first filter (Filter A);
The transfer function T(s) will be given by:
T
T
Where K = 1R2C1 and P = 1R1C1
Since K = 1CR=2,000, the two poles will be both at 2,000Hz
B). Analysis of the second filter (Filter B);
The transfer function T(s) will be given by:
T(s) = R1'//C1'R2'= VoVi
T(s) = 1R2'C1'R1'C1'+1= 1R2'C1'S+1R1'C1' = KS+P
Where P = 1R1'C1' and K = 1R2'C1'
When we cascade the two filters A and B, the overall transfer function will be given by;
T(s) overall = (T(s of Filter A) × (T(s) of Filter B) which is expressed as
c). Calculating the practical values of the components using the standard values of resistors and capacitors;
To obtain the parameters of the first filter, we let K = 4, C1 = 1, Kf = 104, and Km = 105 .
Therefore, the transfer function will be; T(s) = KS+P= KS+1.26
The resistances will be; R1' = 1PC1'= 11.26×1=0.794Ω
R2' = 1PC1'= 14×1=0.25Ω
Applying the scaling factor Km = 105, we obtain the real values as
New R1' = KmR1'Old = 105×0.794=79.4 kΩ
New R2' = KmR2'Old= 105×0.25=25 kΩ
New C1' = 1KmKfC1'Old = 1105×104×1=10-9F=1 nano Farads
From the expression of the transfer function of filter A, we evaluate its transfer function to be
T(s) = 1R2'C1'S+1R1'C1' = 1(25 × 103)(10-9)S+1(79.4 × 103)(10-9) = 4 ×103S+(1.259 × 104)
The frequency of operation is given by ωc=2πfc=2π ×2000=1.26 × 104 rad/s
Next we evaluate the parameters of the second filter (Filter B).
Let K = 2, C1 = 1, Kf = 104, and Km = 105
The transfer function will reduce toT(s) = KS+P= KS+1.26
The values of the resistances will be; R1' = 1PC1'= 11.26×1=0.794Ω
R2' = 1PC1'= 12×1=0.5Ω
Applying the scaling factor Km = 105, we obtain the real values as
New R1 = KmR1Old= 105×0.794=79.4kΩ
New R2 = KmR2Old= 105×0.5=25kΩ
New C1 = 1KmKfC1Old= 1104×105×1=10-9F
From the expression of the transfer function of filter B, we evaluate the transfer function of filter B to be T(s) = 1R2C1S+1R1C1 = 1(50 × 103)(10-9)S+1(79.4 × 103)(10-9) = 2 ×104S+(1.259 × 104)
Lastly, from the overall transfer function expression T(s) = T(s) of Filter A × T(s) of Filter B, we obtain the overall transfer function as T(s) 2 ×104S+(1.259 × 104) × 4 ×104S+(1.259 × 104) =8 ×108S2+25200s+1.59 ×108)
d). Calculating the voltages at each node as output for an input sinusoidal signal of 10V;
Voltage at Node A;
V(a) = R1 R1 +R2 × Vin= 79.4 79.4 +25 ×10=6.136 Volts
Voltage at Node B;
V(b) = R1' R1' +R2' × Vin= 79.4 79.4 +25 ×6.136 = 4.667 Volts
e). Drawing the Bode plots and discussing whether the requirements have been achieved;
We use the expression for magnitude T(s) = 8 ×108ω2 + 25200ω + 1.59×108) to obtain values for plotting the magnitude Bode plot by substituting with different values of frequency.
For example, frequency, w = (0, 100, 400, 1000, 5000) rads/s and so on.
We get the plotting points to be; Point 1 = 14....
