This site is scheduled to be available to enrolled class members by January 7, 2008. COURSE DESCRIPTION: Transient and time-harmonic transmission lines. Smith Charts. Two-port networks. Maxwell’s equations. Force, energy and power. Plane electromagnetic waves. Guided waves. TOPICS COVERED: Transient and steady-state transmission lines, wavelength, phase velocity, attenuation, impedance, bounce diagrams, static fields, time-harmonic fields, boundary conditions, energy and power, plane waves, guided waves. COURSE OBJECTIVES: This is an introductory course in engineering electromagnetics. Emphasis is placed on time-varying topics, such as transmission lines, Maxwell’s equations, and plane and guided waves. The basic concepts of electromagnetic fields, including field vectors, potentials, energy, boundary conditions and material effects will be covered. At the completion of this course the student should be able to: a. Solve problems involving lossless transmission lines with transient excitation. Understand the concepts of traveling waves, reflection, and characteristic resistance. b. Solve problems involving transmission lines with time-harmonic excitation. Understand the concepts of standing waves, reflection coefficient, impedance, attenuation and power transfer. c. Use Smith charts to solve transmission line problems. d. Understand the fundamental nature of static fields, including steady current, static electric and magnetic fields, potentials, resistance, capacitance, inductance, stored energy, materials, and boundary conditions. e. Apply Maxwell’s equations and fundamental concepts from dynamic electromagnetic fields, including Faraday’s law of induction, time-harmonic fields, boundary conditions, wave equations, and Poynting’s power-balance theorem.
