ELEC 280: Fundamentals of Electromagnetics


Units: 3.75

A study of the fundamental aspects of electromagnetic fields. The following topics are covered: the Maxwell's equations and the 3-dimensional wave equation for transmission lines; vector analysis, including orthogonal coordinate systems, and the calculus of field quantities; electrostatic fields including the concepts of electric potential, capacitance, and current and current density; magnetostatic fields including inductance; time-varying fields and the complete form of Maxwell's equations; basic transmission line phenomena including steady-state sinusoidal behaviour and standing waves, transient performance and impedance matching.
