Subject description


  • Enrolment in the class. Acquaintance with content of following courses: Mathematics, Physics, Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I/II.

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • Recapitulation of electromagnetic laws and relations.
  • Electric field. Electric force (particle in electric field, particle accelerator, cathode ray tube, powder coating, electrophotography, powder electric filtering, electrophoresis, Maxwell forces, electric lenses). Electrostatic shielding (influence, Faraday cage, wire grid, electrostatic guard).
  • Insulator. Calculation of capacity. Breakdown (atmospheric (dis)charging, ionization, lightening, lightening conduction, corona).
  • urrent field. Calculation of resistance (fuses, grounding resistances, cathodic protection).
  • Magnetic field. Magnetic force (particle in magnetic field, mass spectrometer, cathode tube, Hall sensor, Maxwell forces, relay, electromagnet). Properties of magnetic materials. Magnetic circuits. Permanent electromagnet. Magnetic recording. Magnetic shielding.
  • Dynamic field. Calculation of coil induction. Hysteresis and eddy current losses. Skin effect. Electromagnetic shielding. Electromagnetic field restrictions in living environment (mobile telephony base stations).
  • Fundamentals of electromagnetic waves.

Objectives and competences:

  • To acquire electromagnetic theory and numerical methods through practical examples and applications.
  • To use tools for numerical calculations of electromagnetic problems.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • To know and understand practical effects of electric, current, magnetic and electromagnetic field.
  • The acquired knowledge serves as a good background for a direct application and work in industry or with network operators, as well as a good chance for a further upgrade or re-usage in similar fields.

Learning and teaching methods:

Lectures and laboratory work.
