Imaginary short

Latest Updated:02/01/2006

Question:

Imaginary short

Answer:

Since, in the case of a negative-feedback amplifier that uses an operational amplifier, the operation is performed so that the potential of the positive input and that of the negative input are the same, a short seems to occur between the two pins. This is called an imaginary short (or virtual short).
