  1. Hi, I'm following an EE class where we are using your Real Analog - Circuits 1 textbook and lectures. I've been very pleased so far, but I happened to notice a giant bummer in chapter 4, section 6 - Maximum Power Transfer. The whole chapter is based on the misunderstanding that maximum power transfer also implies maximum efficiency, which is obviously wrong. A few qoutes: All of these claims only hold for Rload < Rsource, whereas Rload > Rsource will lead to higher efficiency and less power dissipated in the supply. I believe there are more cases of this misunderstanding appearing in the text, those are just a few examples. Regards, Marcel
