Linear operational network  You can analyze the basic properties of two elementary circuits  noninverting amplifier and inverting amplifier integrator with OpAmp. Basic properties and circuit behavior can be analyzed by dynamic DC and AC analysis with different parameters. Parametric AC analysis shows the frequency responses of the amplifier and integrator. Amplifier output signal, depending on the excitation shows transient analysis.
