how are u doing
i want to use the amc1301 to sense a power ac line that has an amplitude ranges from 0 to 700 volts with frequency of 60 hz
as i see i need to use resistor divider network at the input of the AMC1301 so when the ac line is 700v the max amplitude at VINP pin is 250mV .(i connect the VINN to ground )
but i have a problem with this design and my problem is when the power line amplitude reduces down to 100 volts or less i get very low input voltage at VINP about 5mV and its not very big swing at the input of the isolation amplifier .
do have any recommendation of how to sense high ac voltage like in my case
i can solve this issue by connecting a different resistor network so when the amplitude voltage gets down to 100volts i start to use another resistor divider network that give me 250mV at the input of the amc1301
but i want to see if you have another approach for sensing an voltage with an amplitude of 700 AC volts using the amc1301

I believe the error is due to the AMC1301 bias current model. The AMC1301 has a typcal output bias current of 15uA on both VINP and VINN for a total of 30uA output bias current. I am unable to verify how much bias current the simulation model produces. If you look at the file I attached, the DC offset is mostly removed when I scale down the input resistance by a factor of 128. This is impractical for a real application due to thermal concerns of the resistors, but I thought it would help to at least simulate the OPA320 stage.
I also added an additional resistor to the VINN trace to help minimize the DC offset. This configuration can be seen in figure 52. of the datasheet. Look at equation 1 in section 10.2.2.1 Design Requirements to see the gain error equation. Since the input impedance of the AMC1301 is low, when a comparably sized resistor is used for the shunt then it creates an additional resistor divider. Try to get the shunt resistance as low as possible if you are going to use the AMC1301 for voltage sensing. Considering an isolated amplifier for voltage sensing (AMC1311, ISO224) is another route to go as well if you are unable to perform system calibrations.
I made a few changes to the OPA320 stage. I added VCM of 1.5V connected to the positive input terminal of the OPA320 which sets the common mode to 1.5V (halfway between 0 and 3V ADC input range) and changed the values of the feedback resistors to fit the fullscale range. There seems to be some clipping on the negative side of the output swing (85.74mV) that is most likely due to the model. The OPA320 datasheet specifies less than 50mV for all cases of "Voltage output swing from both rails", so I am not sure why I am seeing 86mV. I do not support the OPA320, so I cannot speak to how accurate it's model is. Perhaps you can post to the amplifier forum and they will have an answer.

hii alex thanks for your reply
i saw your modification on the circuit
it looks like the answer to my voltage sensing is using the AMC1311 that you suggested to me :)
i will try it , and if i will have questions i will get back to you , again thanks for your help.
hii alex , hope you are doing will
alex i have a question
in the AMC1311EVM board guide there is a segment talking about isolation between the two VDD rails of the AMC1311 using push-pull driver witha center taped transformer
in my design i need about 5 components of AMC1311 for voltage measuring , and i don't think that for every AMC1311 amplifier i need to build supply isolation circuit that is on figure 3 of
and my question is how many amc1311 isolation amplifiers i can connect to supply circuit that is Shown in figure 3?
Thanks! I hope you are well too!
This depends on a few things, including what voltage you will be supplying. Looking at the SN6501 datasheet - it can supply up to 350mA on a 5V supply or 150mA on a 3.3V supply. The TLV704 LDO can handle up to 150mA on the high side output. Then looking at the AMC1311 datasheet, the maximum current that will be drawn on VDD1 is 9.7mA.
This means that you could have up to 15 devices (150mA/9.7mA) using the recommended circuit. However this is for a perfect system and does not take losses and inefficiencies into account. I think 5 AMC1311 devices should be fine.

thanks for your reply
i get you , i will proceed in my design with 5 amc components
if i will have more questions i will get back to you
thanks for your reply
yes i can see in figure 6 of tidu755.pdf that each phase has a different power supplies for the amc1311.
but i want to ask about the ground in each side of the AMC1311 isolation amplifier
in figure 6 of f tidu755.pdf there is a voltage divider in the bottom of the design for measuring voltage
and i have two questions:
1- the ground of the VDD1 power supply on the left of the AMC beside the motor (ground of the TPS7A3001 side ), is it connected to the neutral phase pf the motors ?
2- the ground on VDD2 on the right of the AMC (ground of the SN6501DBV) , is it connected to the ground of the SitaraTM AM437x IDK ?? cause the output of the AMC goes to an ADC so that means that the ground of the ADC on SitaraTM AM437x IDK is connected to the ground of the SN6501DBV , am i right?
i am asking cause i am confused about the ground layers of each side of the AMC and my design is similar to the design presented in the tidu755.pdf
