Question on AP Transmit Power Level calculation

hi Guys,

I have a question regarding Tx power level configuration under RRM, in Cisco RRM documentation, it says the transmit power is calculated based on the following formula:

Determine the transmit power using this equation:

Tx_Max for given AP + (Tx power control thresh – RSSI of 3rd highest neighbor above the threshold).

what would be the Tx_max for given AP used? under RRM --> TPC there is a global configuration for max tx power, say it we manually configure this value to 10, however the AP's max trasmit power is 20, then which value should we use in the formula for Tx_Max?

the formula came from this link below:

Re: Question on AP Transmit Power Level calculation

The max and min TX power is in dbm. So if the APs max is 20dbm (100mW) you can set the max TX power to 17dbm (50mW) and the min to 11dbm (12.5mW) or any range you want. This gives you the ability to control the max and the minimum TX power that RRM will assign.

Here is a link to determine the max tx of each APs.
