As a result, RL=RTh is the condition for maximum power dissipation over the load. That is, if the load resistance is equal to the source resistance, i.e., Thevenin's resistance, the power wasted across the load will be at its maximum.

Explain the maximum power transfer theorem with an example:

  • If the load impedance is 500 ohms, the maximum power transfer theorem states that the power is maximized at the load (same as internal impedance). Otherwise, to reach the Maximum Power Transfer condition, the internal resistance must be modified to 8 ohms. It is, however, impossible to change either of them.

One of the most important network theories is the Maximum Power Transfer Theorem. In electrical circuit systems, the maximum power transfer theorem aids in determining the maximum external power generated with a finite internal resistance.
