The voltage at the inverting terminal of A2 appears at the output, which is equal to the input, due to the virtual ground at the two input terminals of op-amp A2.
In this case, both AC and DC input voltages need to be applied and output of the clamper is a net result of AC and DC input voltages applied to the inverting terminal, and a potentiometer is connected to noninverting input terminals to vary [V.sub.ref].
