Course Description

This course deals with the fundamental concepts of electromagnetic theory. The emphasis is made on physical understanding and practical applications in Electrical systems. It covers the study of Electric field concepts, Gauss’s Law, Divergence, energy and potential, current in conductors, dielectrics, capacitance, Laplace and Poisson’s equations, steady magnetic field and study of laws like Bio-Savart Law, ampere’s circuital law, magnetic forces, materials and inductance, time varying fields and Maxwell’s equations. In accordance with HEC recommended outcomes a, b , c, d and e following are the expected outcomes for this course Obtain a comprehensive understanding of fundamental concepts in static electric and magnetic fields. Know about fundamental laws of electromagnetic. Be familiar with different vector operators. Be able to apply Gauss’s law, Ampere’s law, Biot-Savart law, and Maxwell’s equations in electromagnetic systems. Be familiar with four Maxwell’s equations Be able to apply electromagnetic boundary conditions to solve for fields at different mediums.
