This is what I need to find: If a consumer Rp1 is connected between points A and B, derive the computational value of consumer Rp1 at which maximum power is developed. Here is a picture of that circuit. Right circuit is Thevenin equivalent circuit for a left circuit. u4UsIb (2).png
Ut = V1/2
How do I find the value of the Rp1 resistor at which maximum power would develop. How do I even get maximum possible power on a resistor?
P.S. V1 can be any value, not only 100V.
