ECE 3030

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Covers static, quasi-static, and dynamic electromagnetic fields and waves. Topics include Maxwell's equations (integral and differential forms), fields of charge and current distributions, boundary conditions, fields near conductors, method of images, material polarization and dielectrics; energy, work, and power in electromagnetic systems; wave propagation and polarization, waves in media (dielectrics, conductors, and anisotropic materials); reflection, transmission, and refraction at media interfaces; guided waves in transmission lines, Smith charts, transients; metallic and dielectric waveguides; radiation and antennas, antenna arrays, electric circuits for transmission and reception, aperture antennas and diffraction.

When Offered Fall, summer.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PHYS 2213,  MATH 2930, and ECE 2100/ENGRD 2100.

Outcomes
  • Be able to use vector calculus to solve Maxwell's Equations describing the electromagnetic static and dynamic fields in a variety of geometries and coordinate systems.
  • Be able to analyze electromagnetic wave propagation in free space and in different materials.
  • Be able to analyze electromagnetic wave propagation through guiding structures (metal and dielectric waveguides and transmission lines) under various loading conditions, and design impedance matching circuits for optimum power transfer.
