Superdiode based half wave rectifier

0 votes

I made a simple model with an op-amp connected to a diode (So that the forward voltage drop of the diode is not reflected in the output voltage).

But it doesn't work.

Could someone tell me, what i am doing wrong ?

Please post your model for the community to be able to help you.
Attached it to the original post, thanks

Did you mean to not connect the ground terminal to the negative of the voltage source (the lower bus)?

Sorry, didn't notice that terminal of the Op-Amp.

Connected the terminal to ground and it works as expected. Thanks
