Feedback is a process whereby some proportion of the output signal of a system is passed (fed back) to the input. This is often used to control the dynamic behavior of the system.
What is feedback as used in electronics?
The process of sending a portion of the signal output from a circuit or device back to its input is known as feedback in electronics. Feedback systems are frequently utilized in process control systems, oscillators, amplifier circuits, and many other applications.
Different types of feedback in Electronics

This tends to reduce output (but in amplifiers, stabilizes, and linearizes operation). Negative feedback feeds part of a system’s output, inverted, into the system’s input; generally with the result that fluctuations are attenuated. Positive feedback: This tends to increase output.
Positive feedback sometimes referred to as “cumulative causation”, is a feedback loop system in which the system responds to perturbation in the same direction as the perturbation. In contrast, a system that responds to the perturbation in the opposite direction is called a negative feedback system.
This can either increase or decrease output.
What type of feedback is used in the circuit?
Positive feedback is used by the oscillator, an amplifier, to produce an output frequency. As the signal is regenerative in this case, the oscillator is self-driven. Nothing is entered. Positive feedback is used mostly to create prolonged oscillations since it meets Bark hausen’s Criteria.
Which type of feedback is used in amplifiers?
Additional Details Amplifier with negative feedback: The output is fed back to the input while being out of phase with the input. Reduced frequency distortion is the effect of negative feedback in amplifiers. broadens the bandwidth#
Advantages of negative feedback over positive feedback.
Negative feedback in amplifiers has the following advantages
- Stabilizes Amplifier Gain.
- Reduces Non-linear Distortion
Much attention has been given by researchers to negative feedback processes because negative feedback processes lead systems toward equilibrium states. Positive feedback reinforces a given tendency of a system and can lead a system away from equilibrium states, possibly causing quite unexpected results.
Comparison Between Positive and Negative Feedback
Classification of Basic Amplifiers
Amplifiers can be classified broadly as,
- Voltage amplifiers.
- Current amplifiers.
- Transresistance amplifiers.
- Transconductance amplifiers.
Classification of Feedback Amplifiers
There are four types of feedback,
- Voltage series feedback.
- Voltage shunt feedback.
- Current shunt feedback.
- Current series feedback.
