Synopsis

Students will comprehend the nature of electric and magnetic fields associated with voltage and currents and how these may be similarly propagated as a travelling wave where such fields constitute the basis of electrical machines and are the cause of much unwanted interference. Students will gain an understanding of both wave propagation and electro-magnetic fields and their application to a wide range of electrical engineering designs.
