Course description
This course introduces the electromagnetic theory related on Maxwell's equation and technique of analysis for Electromagnetic fields.
Based on electrostatic and electromagnetic fields, this subject covers all of areas relating electromagnetisms: starting with the experimental laws, generalizing them in steps, and finally synthesizing them in the form of Maxwell's equations.
Purpose of class
The purpose of this study is to understand the practical application of Maxwell's equations, namely, scaler and vector potentials, electromagnetic induction, inductance, electric energy flow, electric force derived from the virtual displacement.
The four Maxwell's equations together with scaler potential and vector functions are described by the different equations that are valid at every point in space.
At the end of the course, participants are expected to explain the fundamental phenomena of electromagnetic wave, transportation of electric energy using poyting vector.
