Research note On the nonlinear performance of a current follower
SourcetitleInternational Journal of Electronics
The nonlinear behaviour of the input stage of the follower proposed by DeJager and Smit is analysed. Closed-form expressions are obtained for the harmonic components of the input current resulting from exciting the current follower by a single-sinusoid. These expressions can be used to predict the limiting values of the input voltage amplitude for a prespecified tolerable distortion percentage. � 1989 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
