    I need to build an op amp circuit to build a 2 V P-P sine wave, 1 KHZ frequency with a 1.5 V DC Bias. Can anyone help with the design of the circuit im not entirely familiar with op amps. Thank you.

    What level of distortion would be acceptable for this sine wave?

    The 1.5 Bias, you mean you want the sine to be offset from ground
    by 1.5V ?

    Something like this ?

    Im not quite sure about distortion just like im not one hundred percent about the theory behind the circuit.

    Is this a Homework?
    If not then what's the load and purpose for this circuit?

    This is an independent study project , and that was the only info i was given. I've never used/herd of op amp before so i did a lot of research online and i get the gist im just having a difficult time correlating it to the info i was given.

    Hi,

    An op amp is a device that amplifies the difference between two signals. It is almost always used with a feedback circuit to perform linear amplification which is used for different types of circuits.
    For the phase shift oscillator it is used to provide a certain amount of gain as well as 180 phase shift.
    BTW the phase shift oscillator also needs to have some form of amplitude stabilization added to it which is usually some kind of clipping. The gain must be kept at a certain value in order to maintain oscillations yet not cause the output to ramp up and saturate.

    Hello,

    Read the attached PDF.
    It will give you enough theory to build the circuit.

    I am interested in this circuit. I built the schematic on LTSpice but I have no idea of component values like resistors and capacitors. For the transistirs, would 2N222 (or 2N222A) suit the application?

    I was reading somewhere about the RC series and parallel setup for the Wien basic bridge and about the resonant frequency. So I tried 1kΩ resistors and 1uF capacitors for a 160Hz resonant frequency. Then I simulated in LTSpice with a Small AC signal and Decade type from 1Hz to 100Khz. Apparently, the resonant frequency is about 90Hz.
    I'm probably doing it wrong, so I would like to start from here.
    I have attached the circuit.

    Many folk here won't open zip files for security reasons. This site will accept .asc files.

    Hello,

    @PsySc0rpi0n , That is not what the OP is looking for:

    That is not using an OpAmp.

    I have been told more than once to use .zip files instead of separate files. I have there .asc and a .plt file.

    I used that circuit that was suggested by Mr. @AlbertHall .
