For the circuit shown, what value of ZL results in maximum average power transfer to ZL? What is the maximum power in milliwatts?
P max = (VTh)2/4RL
Thevenin, Norton procedures, voltage division, current division, etc etc
The Attempt at a Solution
This is the exact question; kind of confusing if it means find ZL through the inductor or ZL through the load. But I assume it means find the total impedance through the load which includes RL and the capacitor.
Really not sure how I would start for this though, so assuming it's the formula above I need to use, then I guess find the Thevenin Resistance here, and even more so for VTh.
Assuming finding RTh is the same way too (ie, if I'm supposed to find the resistance from A to B with the V source shorted and the load cut out),
then would RTh be (3000 + 4000jΩ)? (Or ZTh because it's impedance?). Not sure about what VTh might be either though.
Any tips on where to start here would be helpful, thanks.
