Magneto-stationary fields, Lorentz force torques, Biot–Savart law, Ampere’s law, magnetic materials, inductance, energy; Maxwell’s equations, Faraday’s law, charge–current continuity, vector potential; time-harmonic fields, plane waves, polarization, skin effect, dielectric boundaries, and fiber optics; radiation, dipole, gain, effective area.
At the end of the course, the student will be able to: 1. Evaluate magnetostatic fields and force due to filamentary and general electric current distribution, 2. Analyze and design transformers generators and motors in relation to Faraday's law of induction, 3. Mathematically describe properties of plane electromagnetic waves, polarization, and attenuation, 4. Formulate and analyze problems involving lossy media with planar boundaries using uniform plane waves. 5. For simple antennas derive fundamental antenna parameters starting from Maxwell's equations and be able to use these in the design of rudimentary wireless communications. systems.
