Understanding the Maximum Power Theorem

Posted by Bill Dull | April 10, 2018 | 0 Comments

The maximum power theorem, better known as the maximum power transfer theorem, is an essential tool for ensuring successful system design. Put simply, this theorem states that the maximum power that can be transferred from source to load is 50%, which occurs when source impedance is exactly matched to load impedance. The theorem is not as simple as it seems at first glance, however, and can be [...]


An Introduction to Impedance Matching Transformers

In order to keep your equipment running smoothly, avoid unplanned downtime, and properly maintain equipment, you need to first ensure that your electrical systems are in check and free of common problems. Electrical impedance, in particular, can hinder the performance of your equipment and cause major, system wide issues.


Differential Mode vs. Common Mode Chokes
