Title: ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD THEORY
Catalog Description: Vector analysis for field theory. General principles. The static and magnetic fields. Electromagnetic energy, forces. Analytical and numerical techniques. Time varying electric and magnetic fields and Maxwell’s equations.
Prerequisites: PHYS 201, MATH 202.
Coordinator: Selim Şeker, Professor of Electrical Engineering
Goals: This course is aimed to give fundamentals of electromagnetic theory to junior year student in electrical and electronic engineering.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
* Understand electrostatic, magnetostatic, and electromagnetic fields and their interaction with matter.
* Solve basic canonical electrostatic, magnetostatic, and electromagnetic problems
* Understand electromagnetic wave propagation.
* Solve for the reflection and transmission of uniform plane waves at infinite planar interfaces.
* Understand the basic of transmission lines and Antennas
Textbook: David K. Cheng, Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics, Addison-Wesley Pub. Co., 1993
Prerequisites by Topic:
* Vector Analysis
* Math Review. Vector addition and multiplication; coordinate systems, circulation and flux, divergence, gradient, curl, vector identities, divergence theorem, Stoke's Theorem. (1 weeks)
* Electrostatics. Charge configurations, Coulomb's law, E-field, electrostatic potential, Gauss's law, dielectrics, boundary conditions, Poisson's and Laplace's equations. (4 weeks)
* Magnetostatics. Electric current, Biot-Savart's law, H field, Ampere's law, magnetic materials, force and torque, resistors, capacitors, and inductors. (3 weeks)
* Dynamics. Field quantities, Maxwell's equations, boundary conditions, potential and wave functions, time-harmonic fields. (3 weeks)
* Fundamentals of transmission lines and Antennas(3 weeks)
* Two Tests (1.0 week)
Course Structure: The class meets for four lectures a week, each consisting of a 50-minute session. Homework problems will be assigned in some weeks. There will be two closed book midterm exams, and a closed book final exam.
Computer Resources: None.
Laboratory Resources: None.
* Homework sets (10%).
* Two mid-term exams (30% each).
* A final exam (40%).
(a) Apply math, science and engineering knowledge: Students must know ordinary and partial differential equation and their solution in time domain and phases space very well. They also need to use complex algebra in this course.
(e) Ability to identify, formulize, and solve engineering problems: The midterm and final are closed book, but we provide necessary equations in exam. So the students should have the ability to identify the parameters, equations for solving the problems given in the midterm and final exams.
(f) Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility: Students are taught about real life experience and ethics behavior and any skill or principle gain in their study will be affected their ethical profession in their future.
