Problem 2 (10 points)
sin( 10 4 t )
(a) For the circuit in Figure 2, what should ZL be to ensure that maximum average power is delivered to the load (that is, average power dissipated by ZL is maximum)? Specify what components ZL would consist of, egs., a resistor and capacitor in series, or resistor and inductor, and what values these are.
(b) For the value of ZL you found in (a), what is the average power dissipated by the load ZL ?

Problem 4 (10 points)
We would like to adjust the load inductor L so that the voltage of the source v(t), and the current i(t), as indicated in Figure 4, have the same phase at ω = 104 rad/sec. What value of L will achieve this? Figure 4:
0.04 µF 1:10
Note: The load inductor L is NOT the same as the transformer coil impedance.

Phasors: v(t) = A cos(ωt + φo ) ↔ V = A∠φo
Impedance: R ↔ R, L ↔ jωL, C ↔ jωC
Complex Numbers: a + jb ↔ r∠φ or rejφ , where
b r = a2 + b2 , φ = tan−1 a and a = r cos φ, b = r sin φ a 1 b 1

Average Power: P = 0.5Vmax Imax cos(θv − θi ) watts
Power Factor (PF): cos(θv − θi ), if PF = 1, the load is purely resistive
Reactive Power: Q = 0.5Vmax Imax sin(θv − θi ) var
Reactive Factor (RF): sin(θv − θi ), if RF = 1, purely inductive, if RF = -1, purely capacitive
Complex Power: S = P + jQ, PF = cos (∠S), RF = sin (∠S)
RMS Voltage/Current: Vrms = √2 Vmax , Irms = √2 Imax
Voltage source V with impedance Z in series ↔ Current source I = (V /Z) with impedance Z in parallel
Maximum Power Transfer: If a source with impedance ZS drives a load of impedance ZL
maximum power is transfered when ZL = ZS
If ZL = RL + jXL can only take restricted values, then choose XL to be as close to −XS
RS + (XL + XS )2 as possible
as possible, then choose RL as close to
If ∠ZL cannot be changed, but magnitude |ZL | can be changed, then choose |ZL | = |ZS |
