The above result is obvious from conservation ofenergy. It simply states that the difference between DCpower and the power to the load must be the power lostto heat.

Efficiency Cont
Class A amplifiers have the undesirable property thatthe power dissipation is maximum for the absence of aninput signal, a common condition. In fact, the efficiencyis a linear function of the output power.The minimum power dissipation occurs for themaximum output power, where half the power isdelivered to the load and the other half is converted toheat
