Every year, the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exhibition (APEC) attracts some of the most well-known leading power engineers in the country. Whether delving into the various uses of semiconductors or demonstrating cutting-edge design tweaks to improve the efficiency of power instruments, APEC has something to pique everyone’s interest.
Understanding the Maximum Power Theorem
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 [...]
