EGB241 Electromagnetics and Machines

The unit covers static electric and magnetic fields and carries on to time varying fields used in transformers AC and DC machines. The generalised concepts of capacitance and inductance as well as the interaction of fields with materials are developed.  It also covers electromagnetic induction, wave propagation, transmission line theory and the basics of the DC machines as well as 3 phase power. It links to work previously developed in EGB120 Foundations in Electrical Engineering, and prepares students for more advanced studies in RF and Power Engineering.
