Electromagnetic Theory I (TET I)
The module Electromagnetic Theory comprises the subjects Electromagnetic Theory I and Electromagnetic Theory II. Expanding and deepening knowledge gained in Basics of Electrical Engineering and thus, providing a comprehensive understanding of electromagnetic field theory is the main target of this module. Mathematical descriptions of electromagnetic phenomena, as well as their physical interpretation, are the main aspects of the lectures.
Electromagnetic Theory I:
After providing a brief repetition in mathematical and electrical basics, originating from Maxwell’s equations, electrostatic fields will be treated. Key issues are thereby:
- Poisson’s and Laplace’s differential equations
- Coulomb integral
- Multipole expansion
- Method of image charges
- Separation of variables for the solution of differential equations with Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions
- Energy and forces within electrostatic fields
Furthermore, theory of stationary electric flux fields will be treated.
