The derivation of maximum power transfer theorem for purely resistive DC circuits.

V_L= E x R_L/(R_L+r)
P_L= 〖V_L〗^2/R_L = (E^2 〖R_L〗^2/〖(R_L+r)〗^2 )/R_L = (E^2 R_L)/〖(R_L+r)〗^2 Calculating the most favourable value of the load resistor for maximum power transfer from a DC source with a internal resistance.

When any arbitrary load resistance may be selected.
Let R_L= kr ( k is a positive number)
P_L= kr/〖(kr+r)〗^2 E^2= k/〖(k+1)〗^2 E^2/r f = k/〖(k+1)〗^2 = 1/(k+2+k^(-1) ) k+k^(-1) ≥ 2 to find the least possible value of k+k^(-1)
To prove above: 〖(k-1)〗^2 ≥ 0 k^2-2k+1 ≥ 0 〖k+k〗^(-1) ≥ 2
Therefore k = 1 to minimize 〖k+k〗^(-1) which then maximizes P_L=

Which is reached by making r = 0.
Therefore P_(L_MAX )= E^2/R_L with an ideal source.
Thus for a completely resistive circuit the internal resistance of a DC source should be equal to zero for maximum power transfer to the load resistance.

The derivation of the maximum power transfer theorem for resistive and non-linear impedance AC circuits.

I – Phasor current

(ωL or-1/ωC)_L and (ωL or-1/ωC)_r= X_L and X_r respectively
I = (E_rms∠0°)/(Z+Z_r ) = (E_rms∠0°)/(r+R_L+j(X_r+X_L))

P_L= |I|^2 R_L

=R_L/(〖(r+R_L)〗^2+〖(X+X_L)〗^2 ) 〖E_rms〗^2
2.1) The maximum power transfer when we have the choice to decide both the load resistance and reactance.

To maximize P_L= R_L/(〖(r+R_L)〗^2+〖(X+X_L)〗^2 ) 〖E_rms〗^2, 〖(X+X_L)〗^2 must be minimized. This is carried out by selecting the load reactance to be the contrary of the AC source’s internal reactance i.e. X_L=X
Therefore load impedance should be the conjugate of the Thevenin impedance/ internal impedance of AC source for maximum power transfer to the load.

2.2) The maximum power formula when load reactance can’t be altered, but the load resistance can be

    It is denoted by the symbol Q, and its magnitude is given by: Again, note how the equation converges for the resistive case where ø = 0 and sinø = 0, as there will be no reactive power at all. Reactive power is measured in VAR (also written Var or VAr), for volt-ampere reactive. We can represent power as a vector in the complex plane: namely, and arrow of length S (apparent power) that makes an angle ø with the real axis. The angle ø is the same as the phase difference between voltage and current. Therefore the VAR compensation improves the stability of ac system by increasing the maximum active power that can be transmitted.…

    PROCEDURE Maximum power and Norton’s Theorem will be performed to solve the unknowns within the given circuit. How to use both Maximum Power and Norton’s Theorem properly, are to be explained in order to solve a circuit using these approaches. THEORY MAXIMUM POWER Maximum power states that a load receives max power from a network when it’s resistance is exactly equal to the Thevenin and Norton resistance of the network supplying the power (as shown below): If the load resistance is higher or lower than the Thevenin/Norton equivalent then there would be no maximum power continued on next page: AT 0.5 Ω: AT 1.1 Ω In Max Power a bell curve graph would be used to show the correlation between power (R_L) versus resistance (R_S)…

    Furthermore, in the straight pipe, a fully developed laminar assumption is satisfied under the condition that shape change is negligible. Numerical analysis technique the numerical analysis is performed by combining the governing equations related to the conservation of energy, conservation of mass and conservation of electrical charge to examine fluid distributions, heat transfers, mass transfers and electrochemical reactions. The assumptions used in developing the model are as follow: 1) Ideal gas law was employed for gaseous species. 2) The fluid flow in the fuel cell was laminar due to the low flow velocities and the small size of gas flow…

    Two limiting factors, i.e., cross-head speed and draw ratio were optimized to obtain the highest possible alignment of the nanofibrils during the hydrogel stretching. High cross-head speed and draw ratio typically lead to nanofibrillar fracture [ ]. Hence, the draw ratio and cross-head speed for largest inelastic deformation to align TBC in the stretching direction were optimized by conducting preliminary experiments. Figure 2 shows typical stretching behavior of TBC hydrogel at a cross-head speed of 0.03 mm/min. The optimum stretching of TBC hydrogel was obtained at a draw ratio of 1.2 without any initiation of fracture in TBC.…

    The left curve shows a one shell / two tube pass heat exchanger and the right curve shows a two shell / four tube pass heat exchanger. These heat exchangers have corresponding CF-P-R curves shown in the discussion of the LMTD method, as displayed in figure 11. Actually, figure 11 corresponds to the same types of heat exchanger as in figure 13. The one shell / two tube pass heat exchanger has some portion of flow that is counter flow, some is parallel flow, and some is cross flow. Each HCRR curve flattens to a maximum value of Effectiveness as was the case for the pure single pass parallel flow heat exchanger.…

    Results An initial resistance versus magnetic field measurement on NdMo16O44 reveals a pronounced magnetic hysteresis effect when a magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the current, but with unknown orientation with respect to the crystal axes, as shown in Fig. 2a for temperatures from 12K to 30K (at temperature below 12K, the overall resistance is too high to produce low-noise measurements with resolvable magnetoresistance features). The individual plots are offset to better show the effect. A sharp drop in the magneto-resistance on the order of 30% of the zero-field resistance appears at a temperature of 12K, with local extrema at fields of approximately +0.38T and +0.55T (-0.38T and -0.55T, respectively) when the field is swept from…

For both the test systems, the size of the DGs is varied from 0.1 MW to 10 MW. The sizes, which provide the minimum real power losses, are the best size of DGs to be placed at these optimal locations. The success of any algorithm or optimization is endorsed, only if it is suitable for a variety of situations. Here, to examine the success and stiffness of this proposed approach, two cases are considered for the test system as follows.…
