Electromagnetic Fields and Propagating Systems (2307ENG)

This course covers fundamental electromagnetic theory including Electrostatics, Magnetostatics, Electromagnetic Induction, Electromagnetic Radiation, Properties of Matter and finally finishing with Maxwell's equations. This basic theory is then used to explore the principles of propagation on guided media such as cables and waveguides. Basic principles such as the Telegraph equations lead to characteristic impedance, reflection and transmission coefficient, standing and travelling waves. Simple modes in rectangular and circular waveguides are examined and fundamental dispersion issues are addressed. Smith charts are used as a calculation tool for transmission problems and numerous matching and coupling problems are attempted. A series of laboratories explore measurements of signals and fields on simple systems.
