Tool/software: TINA-TI or Spice Models
I'm designing a sallen-key high pass filter as below, the output is instable.
So I analyze the stability of this circuit using the following circuit.
The bode plot of Aol*beta is:
At frequency of 12Hz, there is a pole, why the frequency shift is up to 300 degree? My basic knowledge is that a pole may result in 90 degree phase shift, is that wrong? Besides, the slope at 0dB is -20dB/dec, why the circuit is instable?
Circuit with OPA191: R1, C1, R2, C2 add 2 poles at ~12Hz without much change in gain during that phase. Hence a big dip in phase is observed.
Circuit with LM2904: Please try keeping the Opamp in voltage follower mode for Sallen-Key HPF. Later R1, C1, R2 and C2 can be tuned to get the required cut off frequency.
I hope this helps.

In reply to Cera Wei:
I am no expert in Sallen-key HPF. But, as i understand, the opamp is used in voltage follower mode as a buffer. Meaning, the load should not affect my HPF characteristics(pole-zero locations). And, since it is a filter, 0dB gain (unity gain) is preferred.
I hope, this helps.
By my calculation the Q of your circuit is negative. This is due to the gain of 5 in your circuit. Looking at the component values in your circuit (equal C, one resistor twice the other), are you trying to design a Butterworth filter with Q=0.707? If you make the gain = 1 by removing R4 then by my calculations Q=0.707.

Thank you for your reply. Your analysis is right!
By the way, I still can't understand why the phase shift is so large.
