100mA current sensing circuit limiter

Ask QuestionAsked todayActive todayViewed 49 times0

Please i need your help. I am to design this circuit to be able to produce an 100mA at the output as i reduce the load resistor from 1k to 0Ohm. I am having problem on how to go about it for my current circuit keep given me a 1A or more at the output even as the load resistor is at 0Ohm.

enter image description here

i vary the load resistor from 1k to 0hm but the maximum current i am getting is 1.9A through 0.1 Ohm. I only required 100mA current when the load resistor is at 0 Ohm.operational-amplifiercircuit-analysisanalogcurrent-limitingShareCiteEditFollowFlagedited 2 hours agoasked 3 hours agoikenna1111 bronze badge New contributor

  • 21) You need to show the complete circuit, this is only part of it. 2) be more clear about the function of this circuit, is it a constant current source or something else? 3) how is it supposed to work, I do not mean “it needs to limit the current” but how would that happen? Like: a voltage develops across a sense resistor, that voltage is amplified by … and then, when larger than … pulls a current from … which means the transistor … gets a smaller Vgs and that limits the output curent. – Bimpelrekkie 3 hours ago

  • I read your schematic and guess what you are doing is the following: (1) MOSFET is the driving transistor, (2) 0.1R is the current sensing resistor, (3) The two opAmps form a current mirror and negative feedback to make the MOSFET driver current constant, thus making a constant current source or current limiter. The CCS circuit is OK is general. But you need to understand the basic principles before you can troubleshoot. I would recommend the a couple of CCS articles for you to refer to, so we can have a command ground and terms to explore how to debug you circuit, / to continue, … – tlfong01 1 min ago   Edit
