1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The problem can be found http://whites.sdsmt.edu/classes/ee382/homework/382Homework4.pdf" [Broken]. It is the last one. 2. Relevant equations Maximum power occurs when Rp,eff = (N1/N2)2RL = Rs, which means that maximum power occurs when N1/N2 = sqrt(Rs/RL). 3. The attempt at a solution To find Rs, I need to find the Thevenin equivalent at the source, which is simply the same voltage source Vin in series with the 3k resistor; therefore, Rs = 3k. RL = 2k + 6k = 8k n = N1/N2 = sqrt(Rs/RL) = sqrt(3k/8k) = .61237 For some reason this doesn't seem right to me. It just seems too easy. Am I doing something wrong, or is this correct?
