Course Objective Electromagnetic theory is a discipline concerned with the study of charges, at rest and in motion that produced currents, electric and magnetic fields. Therefore it is one of the fundamental subjects of electrical and electronics engineering. In the scope of this course, the constitutive parameters and relations of electromagnetics will be given, Maxwell equations will explained for time varying and time-harmonic fields and boundary value problem solutions will be done using wave equations in appropriate coordinate systems. In addition to this the subjects of propagation, polarization and normal and oblique incidence of plane waves to plane boundaries that encountered frequently in engineering electromagnetics will investigated.
Course Content Time varying and time-harmonic electromagnetic fields; Maxwell equations, constitutive parameters and relations; Boundary conditions, Power density and energy conservation; electrical properties of matter; wave equation and its solutions in rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems; wave propagation and polarization; normal and oblique incidence of plane waves to different media interfaces.
