    I'm investigating maximum power transfer in a ac circuit. I understand that for maximum power transfer the reactance both cancel each other out and the value of the source resistance and load resistance have to be equal. I have also found some formulas to prove this.

    I do not have any pspice software so I cant simulate the circuit but what i want to know is what happens when the capacitive load increases, at what point does the load see maximum power transfer and also what happens when the source inductance increases.

    Many thanks
