35.1 Maximum power transfer theorems

Figure 35.1

A network that contains linear impedances and one or more voltage or current sources can be reduced to a Th´evenin equivalent circuit as shown in Chapter 33. When a load is connected to the terminals of this equivalent circuit, power is transferred from the source to the load. A Th´evenin equivalent circuit is shown in Figure 35.1 with source internal impedance, z D r C jx and complex load Z D R C jX. The maximum power transferred from the source to the load depends on the following four conditions. Condition 1. Let the load consist of a pure variable resistance R (i.e. let X D 0). Then current I in the load is given by: ID

E r C R C jx

and the magnitude of current, jIj D

E [r C R2 C x 2 ]

The active power P delivered to load R is given by P D jIj2 R D

E2 R r C R2 C x 2

To determine the value of R for maximum power transferred to the load, P is differentiated with respect to R and then equated to zero (this being the normal procedure for finding maximum or minimum values using 1

from which, r 2 C x 2 D R2 R=

Thus, with a variable purely resistive load, the maximum power is delivered to the load if the load resistance R is made equal to the magnitude of the source impedance. Condition 2. Let both the load and the source impedance be purely resistive (i.e., let x D X D 0). From equation (35.1) it may be seen that the maximum power is transferred when

Thus with the load impedance Z consisting of variable resistance R and variable reactance X, maximum power is delivered to the load when X = −x and R = r,

i.e., when R C jX D r jx. Hence maximum

power is delivered to the load when the load impedance is the complex conjugate of the source impedance. Condition 4. Let the load impedance Z have variable resistance R and fixed reactance X. From Figure 35.1, the magnitude of current, jIj D

Impedance matching

It is seen from Section 35.1 that when it is necessary to obtain the maximum possible amount of power from a source, it is advantageous if the circuit components can be adjusted to give equality of impedances. This adjustment is called ‘impedance matching’ and is an important consideration in electronic and communications devices which normally involve small amounts of power. Examples where matching is important include coupling an aerial to a transmitter or receiver, or coupling a loudspeaker to an amplifier. The mains power supply is considered as infinitely large compared with the demand upon it, and under such conditions it is unnecessary to consider the conditions for maximum power transfer. With transmission lines (see Chapter 44), the lines are ‘matched’, ideally, i.e., terminated in their characteristic impedance. With d.c. generators, motors or secondary cells, the internal impedance is usually very small and in such cases, if an attempt is made to make the load impedance as small as the source internal impedance, overloading of the source results. A method of achieving maximum power transfer between a source and a load is to adjust the value of the load impedance to match the source impedance, which can be done using a ‘matching-transformer’. A transformer is represented in Figure 35.11 supplying a load impedance ZL .

Figure 35.11

Matching impedance by means of a transformer

Small transformers used in low power networks are usually regarded as ideal (i.e., losses are negligible), such that 7

(This is the case introduced in Section 20.10, page 334). Thus by varying the value of the transformer turns ratio, the equivalent input impedance of the transformer can be ‘matched’ to the impedance of a source to achieve maximum power transfer. Problem 7. Determine the optimum value of load resistance for maximum power transfer if the load is connected to an amplifier of output resistance 448 through a transformer with a turns ratio of 8:1 The equivalent input resistance r of the transformer must be 448 for maximum power transfer.

Let the output impedance of the generator be z, where z D 450 C j60 or 453.986 7.59° , and the load impedance be ZL , where ZL D 40 C j19 or 44.286 25.41° .

Impedance matching

It is seen from Section 35.1 that when it is necessary to obtain the maximum possible amount of power from a source, it is advantageous if the circuit components can be adjusted to give equality of impedances. This adjustment is called ‘impedance matching’ and is an important consideration in electronic and communications devices which normally involve small amounts of power. Examples where matching is important include coupling an aerial to a transmitter or receiver, or coupling a loudspeaker to an amplifier. The mains power supply is considered as infinitely large compared with the demand upon it, and under such conditions it is unnecessary to consider the conditions for maximum power transfer. With transmission lines (see Chapter 44), the lines are ‘matched’, ideally, i.e., terminated in their characteristic impedance. With d.c. generators, motors or secondary cells, the internal impedance is usually very small and in such cases, if an attempt is made to make the load impedance as small as the source internal impedance, overloading of the source results. A method of achieving maximum power transfer between a source and a load is to adjust the value of the load impedance to match the source impedance, which can be done using a ‘matching-transformer’. A transformer is represented in Figure 35.11 supplying a load impedance ZL .

Matching impedance by means of a transformer

(This is the case introduced in Section 20.10, page 334). Thus by varying the value of the transformer turns ratio, the equivalent input impedance of the transformer can be ‘matched’ to the impedance of a source to achieve maximum power transfer. Problem 7. Determine the optimum value of load resistance for maximum power transfer if the load is connected to an amplifier of output resistance 448 through a transformer with a turns ratio of 8:1 The equivalent input resistance r of the transformer must be 448 for maximum power transfer.
