ECET 32400 - Fundamentals Of Electromagnetics
Credit Hours: 4.0.
This course introduces the fundamentals of electromagnetics in both theory and application. In the course wave propagation, transmission lines, antenna theory, and antenna design are studied. Other topics include Maxwell's equations, planewave propagation, reflection, refraction, diffraction, propagation losses, RF signal measurement, impedance matching, and Smith chart applications.
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
1. Demonstrate knowledge of transmission line theory and application.
2. Apply and analyze transmission line systems using Smith charts.
3. Demonstrate microstrip and stripline analysis and design.
4. Demonstrate the fundamentals and use of port parameters.
5. Design impedance matching networks using Smith charts.
6. Demonstrate and apply electromagnetic theory to vector calculus in three coordinate systems.
7. Describe and apply the fundamentals of electromagnetic wave propagation.
8. Design, simulate and analyze antennas.
9. Use RF simulation software for the analysis and design of RF circuits.
10. Demonstrate the use of RF laboratory equipment including the vector network analyzer, spectrum analyzer and RF generator.
