Ee443 phase locked loop - presentation - schwappach and brandy

  1. 1. Phase-locked loop (PLL) By: Loren Schwappach & Crystal Brandy Prepared for: Dr. Jing Guo CTU – EE443 – Communications 1 September 2010
  2. 2. Overview• What is a PLL?• Modeling a PLL• Properties of PLLs• Simulating and Testing a PLL• Other Applications of PLLs• Questions• References
  3. 3. What is a phase-locked loop?• A negative feedback control system whose operation is closely linked to frequency modulation (FM).• Automatically adjusts the frequency, and phase of a control signal to match a reference signal.• Commonly used for carrier synchronization and indirect frequency demodulation.
  4. 4. What is a phase-locked loop? Continued...• A change in the input signal shows up as a change in phase between the input signal and the VCO frequency.• Consists of 3 major components – Voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) • Performs frequency modulation on its own carrier signal – Phase Detector • Multiplies an incoming FM wave by the output of the VCO – Loop filter • Removes the high-frequency components contained in the multiplier’s output.
  5. 5. Modeling a PLL: Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) for FM Demodulation: FM ed(t) ef(t) wave Phase Detector Loop Filter Loop Amplifier v(t) s(t) eo(t) Voltage Controlled ev(t) Oscillator (VCO) Voltage Controlled Oscillator s t = cos 2πfc t+ φ1 (t) • The error signal produced is proportional to Phase Detector: 1 = 2 phase error. 0 s(t) ed(t) = 2 + 2 () • The error signal also represents whether the correction should increase or decrease the eo(t) 2 = 2 VCO frequency. 0 high-frequency component low-frequency component 1 1 = sin 4πfc t+φ1 (t)+φ2 (t) + sin φ1 (t)-φ2 (t) 2 2 1 ≈ sin φ1 (t)-φ2 (t) 2
  6. 6. Modeling a PLL: Continued...Why use a VCO?:A VCO produces an output whose = sin + frequency deviation depends upon theinput voltage. () = 2 () What does that sound like? () = 2 () That’s right.. An FM signal. So you can 0model a VCO the same. Example of a commonly used VCO VCO’s can be implemented in numerous ways. Crystal Oscillators, RLC oscillators, etc are just the beginning. VCO time-domain equation: ftuning(t) = Kv * vin(t)
  7. 7. Modeling a PLL: Continued...Non-Linear Mathematical Model of PLL: ed(t) ef(t) 1 1 ∑ Sin(α) Loop Filter 2 ev(t) 2 2 () Loop Amplifier 0 Assume PLL is locked, then: = (1 − 2 ) = 0 Now we can use a linearized model. Linearized Mathematical Model of PLL (Locked PLL): = (1 − 2 ) = 0 1 1 ed(t) ef(t) ∑ Loop Filter, h(t) 2 ev(t) 2 2 () Loop Amplifier 0 Demodulated 1 () 2 () = signal 2 = 2
  8. 8. Properties of phase-locked loops:• Step response: ability to phase/frequency step on its input.• Setting Time: amount of time needed to lock-on after receiving an input.• Phase Jitter: Short-term frequency instability causing small, rapid movements in phase. Often referred to as phase noise.
  9. 9. Simulating and Testing a PLL...Testing a simple PLL Design (Using Simulink):Suppose we are given a composite sinusoidal wave: s t = 5 cos 36 × 2πt + 2sin⁡ (180 × 2πt) And we would like to frequency modulate and demodulate this wavewith a 10kHz carrier, using a Phase-locked loop feed back system fordemodulation. The transmission bandwidth (BT) is not allowed to exceed3 kHz.Design Considerations: ∆ = × Carrier frequency (fc) = 10e3 (Hz),BT 3e3 (Hz) so kf 132 (Hz/V) {using max values}, ∆Let kf = 1e2 (Hz/V) then Beta = approx 5.5 (wideband) = Let LP filter cutoff at approx 1e4 (Hz)Things to test: = 2 × ∆ + 2 × 1. Initial Design = 2 × × + 2 × 2. What happens when kf 1e2 (smaller bandwidth)3. What happens when kf 1e2 (larger bandwidth) × =4. What happens when LP Filter cutoff is 1e4 (Hz) 5. What happens when LP Filter cutoff is 1e4 (Hz)6. What happens when we use a 1st order Butterworth.
  10. 10. Simulating and Testing a PLL...Test #1: Initial PLL Design
  11. 11. Simulating and Testing a PLL... Test #1: Initial PLL DesignObservations:A: It worked! The FM signal wassuccessfully demodulated using phase-locked loop feedback.B: The kf value of 1e2 (Hz/V) providedenough sensitivity to accurately reproducethe message while keeping the BT 3e3 (Hz).C: The Loop Filter produced a clean outputsignal and removed the high frequencycomponent produced by the phase detector(multiplier).
  12. 12. Simulating and Testing a PLL...Test #2: kf 1e2
  13. 13. Simulating and Testing a PLL... Test #2: kf 1e2Observations:A: It failed! The FM signal was notsuccessfully demodulated.B: The kf value of 1e1 (Hz/V) (B .1), wasnot sensitive enough to accuratelyreproduce the message signal in the timedomain. Furthermore, the second messagecomponent (180 Hz) displayed majorattenuation compared to the first messagecomponent (36 Hz). (See previous slide forcomparison).C: The Loop Filter produced a clean outputsignal and removed the high frequencycomponents produced by the phasedetector (multiplier).
  14. 14. Simulating and Testing a PLL...Test #3: kf 1e2
  15. 15. Simulating and Testing a PLL... Test #3: kf 1e2Observations:A: It failed! The FM signal was notsuccessfully demodulated.B: The kf value of 1e3 (Hz/V) (B 50), wassensitive enough to accurately reproducethe message signal in the time domain.However, the increased value of kf pushedthe transmission bandwidth way above thecarrier frequency and exceeding ourbandwidth requirement.C: The Loop Filter would need to beadjusted (If the BT didn’t exceed the carrier,which it did) to account for the increasedfrequency components.
  16. 16. Simulating and Testing a PLL...Test #4: Cutoff frequency 1e4
  17. 17. Simulating and Testing a PLL... Test #4: Cutoff frequency 1e4Observations:A: It failed! The FM signal was notsuccessfully demodulated.B: The kf value of 1e2 (Hz/V) providedenough sensitivity to accurately reproducethe message while keeping the BT 3e3 (Hz).C: The Loop Filter failed! The LP cutofffrequency of 1 kHz was to low and removedseveral of the pieces (starting at the carrier)needed to accurately represent themessage.
  18. 18. Simulating and Testing a PLL...Test #5: Cutoff frequency 1e4
  19. 19. Simulating and Testing a PLL... Test #5: Cutoff frequency 1e4Observations:A: It failed! The FM signal was notsuccessfully (cleanly) demodulated.B: The kf value of 1e2 (Hz/V) providedenough sensitivity to accurately reproducethe message while keeping the BT 3e3 (Hz).C: The Loop Filter failed! The LP cutofffrequency of 1.5 kHz was to high andallowed several of the unwanted highfrequency components into the system.
  20. 20. Simulating and Testing a PLL...Test #6: Using a 1st order Butterworth
  21. 21. Simulating and Testing a PLL... Test #6: Using a 1st order ButterworthObservations:A: It failed! The FM signal was notsuccessfully (cleanly) demodulated.B: The kf value of 1e2 (Hz/V) providedenough sensitivity to accurately reproducethe message while keeping the BT 3e3 (Hz).C: The Loop Filter failed! The first orderButterworth filter allowed several of theunwanted high frequency components intothe system.
  22. 22. Other Applications of PLLs:• Control Systems• Frequency Synthesizers• Jitter reducers• Digital PLLs• Clock Generation• Zero Delay Buffers• Spread Spectrum Frequency Synthesizers• Demodulators (QPSK, QAM, FM, FSK, SSB)
  23. 23. Conclusion:A phase locked loop is a negative feedback control system whose operationcan be used to demodulate an FM signal.The phase-locked loop will automatically adjust it’s frequency and phasebased on an input error voltage and attempt to lock onto a reference signal.Commonly used for carrier synchronization, indirect frequency demodulation,clocking, buffering, and jitter removal.Finally: If you would like to further enhance your understanding of phase-locked loops, there is an excellent YouTube video by Professor SurendraPrasad, Department of Electrical Engineering ,IIT Delhi.
