Synthesized Inductor Delivers Maximum Power Transfer
12.28.2017 · Articles
To transfer maximum power from a circuit to a load, the load’s resistance, RL, must match the source resistance, RO. In the case of a complex load, ZL, and a resistive source, this transfer can require the use of a bulky inductor. This idea shows how to replace the physical inductor with a smaller synthesized inductor...
