Use an op amp with rail to rail output for maximum ramp voltage. For those that have asked for how the circuit works the RH op amp is an integrator. The LH op amp is a Schmitt trigger with hysteresis from the positive feed back to reset the integrator. The circuit is readily adjusted to alter both the ramp frequency, the ramp amplitude, and the ramp average voltage. Note that as drawn the 5K resistor and the diode connected to the 40K resistor are not actually required.
I tried with different voltage dividers answer still doesn't work.
I used Capture to generate a Fourier transform of the signal, and thought that the energy drops off pretty quick for what I want. I'm messing with different component values to try to decrease the dropoff.
I changed the 5k for a 2k, and the upper 40k for 80k, resulting in an even steeper slope in the fast component of the waveform. The Fourier transform resulted in an even bigger drop between the fundamental and the second harmonic, but the amplitude at higher frequencies seems to persist.
