Proportional- Integral Temperature Control

A high- accuracy temperature control amplifier can be realized with a proportional- integral amplifier response; the integrator function drives the steady- state error to zero.  An autozero instrumentation amplifier INA326 achieves very low offset and drift as well as virtually eliminating the loop error due to 1/f noise. R6 is used simply to provide a feedback path during a DC analysis. This circuit requires an overall feedback path (TEC, etc) to achieve a steady-state operating point. This amplifier allows temperature control loop stability within in a few tens of milli- degrees. Bypass capacitors are not shown. This circuit can be used with a DRV593 or an OPA569 TEC driver circuit. (Circuit is created by Neil P. Albaugh  TI – Tucson)
