I'm studying power converter control loops using Christophe Basso's book
Designing Control Loops for Linear and Switching Power Supplies.
A very common pattern in the compensator circuits is a resistor in series with
a capacitor (\$R_2\$ and \$C_1\$ below, please disregard \$C_2\$) providing local feedback from an op amp's output to it's inverting input:
I'm having trouble understanding specifically how this affects the transfer function (like which R's and which C's produce time constants that add a pole or zero) and
I've yet to find a place where it's actually spelled out. It seems like one of
those things that folks figure is obvious to the reader and never explicitly
It doesn't match any op amp amplifier circuits I've seen, although there is an augmenting integrator described on p59 of the TI Handbook of Operational Amplifier Applications2 that is quite similar except that the position of R2 and C1 are reversed. From piecing together odds and ends on some application notes and what not, I understand this adds a pole and a zero to the transfer function. But I'd really like to be able to derive that for myself, perhaps helped along by some examples and more description.
Does this configuration have a name that I could search on to learn more? Or is it perhaps easily explained?
