The theory of operation of a discontinuous single-electrode voltage clamp using an ideal microelectrode (infinite response speed) and fixed (current-passing) duty cycle has been previously described. In this paper, the theory is extended by considering a microelectrode which has a finite response speed, by allowing the duty cycle to be variable, and by considering the clamp noise. Formulate are derived for the relationships between the step response, the steady-state error, the steady-state… CONTINUE READING
