1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For the following circuit, find the values of RL and CL that maximize the power extracted from the generator. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/15390227/circuit.jpg [Broken] 2. Relevant equations Z = R + jX XL = jωL XC = 1/jωC 3. The attempt at a solution Immediately, the impedance of the source can be easily determined, as the source resistor and inductor are in series: ZS = 50 + j47.879 Ω Normally, if the load's resistor and capacitor were in series, this could easily be solved by setting the load impedance equal to the complex conjugate of the source impedance: ZL = 50 - j47.879 Ω However, I can't do this since the load's resistor and capacitor are in parallel, not in series. I could determine the equivalent impedance of the load with this formula: ZL = XCRL / XC + RL Once I have these two equations for the load impedance, I'm kind of stumped on what to do next. I think I'm on the right track, but I've hit a brick wall. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
