Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

Electromagnetic fields play important roles in most technical and physical systems. There are numerous examples ranging from electrical motors to antennas, semiconductors, optical devices, electromagnetic compatibility. The aim of this course is to give sufficient knowledge of electromagnetic fields for a basic understanding of the engineering applications.

Content

Vector analysis necessary for an effective handling of electromagnetic fields.
ELECTROSTATICS: Electric charges and electric fields, Coulomb's and Gauss's laws, superposition, potential, Poisson's and Laplace's equations, dielectric materials, dipoles, polarisation and displacement fields, capacitance calculations, electrostatic energy and force calculations.
ELECTRIC CURRENT: Current density field, continuity equation, Ohm's and Joule's laws, resistance calculations.
MAGNETOSTATICS: Magnetic flux density field, vector potential, Lorentz's force equation, forces on current carrying conductors, Ampère's circuital law, Biot-Savart law, calculation of fields from simple current distributions, magnetic materials, dipoles, magnetisation field, magnetic field strength, ferro-magnetism, permanent magnets.
INDUCTION: Faraday's law, calculations of mutual and self inductances, transformers, generators, motors, magnetic energy and force calculations.
MAXWELL'S EQUATIONS: Displacement current, wave equations, retarded potentials, waves in vacuum, boundary conditions, Poynting vector, monochromatic plane waves in media with and without losses, skin effect, reflection, transmission and refraction at plane boundaries, Snell's law, Fresnel's equations, Brewster angle, total reflection.

Organisation

The course is carried through with lectures, exercises and computer projects, where programs based on the finite element method (FEM) and the method of moments (MoM) are used to solve two-dimensional electrostatic and magnetostatic problems.
