This calculator allows calculation of Mismatch Loss from source resistance and reactance, and load resistance and reactance.
Mismatch Loss is the ratio for a given source of the power in a matched load to the power in the actual load. It is often give in decibels as 10 times the log of the ratio of the power in a matched load to the power in the actual load.
A matched load is a load with impedance equal to the complex conjugate of the source impedance.
The results are valid only for linear circuits.
The calculator does not do a lot of error checking, if you enter nonsense, it will produce nonsense.
