Measuring Feedback Loop from flyback

Question asked by Edwin Marte on Oct 11, 2016

Hello All,


a few days ago I received a Isolated universal mains flyback converter demo board (TEA1721ADB1061). My main intention was to measure the Feedback Loop. I am using the analog discovery analyzer with isolation transformer. I inserted a 22 ohm in series with R3 (from schematic) to be able to inject a signal. 


I placed a 1000 ohm load across the 12V output, I measured 13.48V constant in that output. My problem is that when I touch the 22 ohm resistor, the feedback loop, with the scopes probe the output voltage drops suddenly to 0.3-0.8 Volts. I haven't been able to make any measurements.


I wanted to be able to measure the feedback loop  to check if this controller will satisfy an application e are working on. In the data sheet there is no much information compensation , how it works or how it colud be done. Anybody has any more information besides the one provided by data sheet of  TEA1721?


Any help appreciated,
