Conditions for maximum power transfer are considered within electrical, mechanical and electromechanical systems. The familiar concept of resistance load matching within an electrical system is extended to a mechanical system, and is 50% efficient. For electromechanical systems, the transfer of maximum power from one domain (say, the electrical) to the other (say, mechanical) is also 50% efficient. However, when losses occur in both the electrical and mechanical domains, the concept of load matching must be applied within the domain to which power is being delivered; efficiency is now less than 50%, which is most easily seen from the source domain.
