Hi:
I have computed the maximum ac output voltage as follows:
Lesser of: Ic * (rc + re) = 1mA * (2.91K + 0) = 2.91 Vpk
Or : Vce = 5 Vpk
Therefore Vmax = 2.91 Vpk
But this output is not realistic as it is badly distorted. In this
example, Vce = 5 volts, but it can't be utilized since the
maximum useful output seems to be approx. 215 mVpk
per the sim.
Why do textbooks and lecturers make these calculations?
What is the maximum useful ac output voltage?
Thanks,
David
