Electromagnetic fields, both static and dynamic, form the foundational basis of all electrical and electronic engineering devices and systems. Aimed at undergraduate students, university teachers, design and consultant engineers and researchers this book presents an in-depth, simple and comprehensive reference source on electromagnetics engineering.In much of electrical and electronics engineering (including: analogue and digital telecommunications engineering; biomedical monitoring and diagnostic equipment; power systems engineering and sensor technology) getting back to the fundamental principles that govern the technologies, namely electromagnetic fields and waves, has become crucial for future customer friendly technology and systems. Electromagnetics Engineering Handbook has been written to enable undergraduate students studying electromagnetics engineering for the first time to gain an understanding of the essentials of the largely invisible, but powerful, electromagnetic fields governed by the four elegant Maxwell's equations. Moreover, the book helps to apply that knowledge through analytical and computational solutions of these frequency and material dependent electric and magnetic fields. As electrical and electronic engineering grows and subdivides into many specialities this book aims to inform the reader of the basic principles that govern all of these specialised systems and on how to apply that knowledge to understand and design devices and systems that may operate at vastly different frequencies and in various media (e.g. semiconductor materials, magnetic materials, biological tissues, outer space and sea water). It also deals with a range of different functions dependant on the area of application. For example at very low power frequencies electromagnetic fields perform vastly different functions from device to device, such as in power transformers; current transformers; infrared sensors; synchronous generators; superconducting devices; electric motors and electric powered transport systems. This handbook will be of great help to students, engineers, innovators and researchers working in a wide variety of disciplines

Based on familiar circuit theory and basic physics, this book serves as an invaluable reference for both analog and digital engineers alike. For those who work with analog RF, this book is a must-have resource. With computers and networking equipment of the 21st century running at such high frequencies, it is now crucial for digital designers to understand electromagnetic fields, radiation and transmission lines. This knowledge is necessary for maintaining signal integrity and achieving EMC compliance. Since many digital designers are lacking in analog design skills, let alone electromagnetics, an easy-to-read but informative book on electromagnetic topics should be considered a welcome addition to their professional libraries. Covers topics using conceptual explanations and over 150 lucid figures, in place of complex mathematics Demystifies antennas, waveguides, and transmission line phenomena Provides the foundation necessary to thoroughly understand signal integrity issues associated with high-speed digital design

This is the first truly comprehensive and most up-to-date handbook available on modern reflector antennas and feed sources for diversified space and ground applications. There has never been such an all-encompassing reflector handbook in print, and no currently available title offers coverage of such recent research developments. The Handbook consists of three volumes. Volume I provides a unique combination of theoretical underpinnings with design considerations and techniques. The need for knowledge in reflector antennas has grown steadily over the last two decades due to increased use in space and ground applications, as well as their high gain and wide bandwidth capabilities at relatively low cost. This volume brings you to the leading edge of developments in the field related to numerical techniques, classical reflector geometries, adaptive reflector antennas, shaped reflectors, bifocal and bicollimated dual reflectors, advanced reflectors, and reflect arrays. A must-have reference for both practicing engineers as well as academic researchers.

An accessible and practical tool for effective antenna design Due to the rapid development of wireless communications, the modeling of radiation and scattering is becoming more important in the design of antennas. Consequently, it is increasingly important for antenna designers and students of antenna design to have a comprehensive simulation tool. Sergey Makarov's text utilizes the widely used Matlab software, which offers a e flexible and affordable alternative to other antenna and electromagnetic modeling tools currently available. After providing the basic background in electromagnetic theory necessary to utilize the software, the author describes the benefits and many practical uses of the Matlab package. The text demonstrates how Matlab solves basic radiation/scattering antenna problems in structures that range from simple dipoles to patch antennas and patch antenna arrays. Specialized antenna types like fractal antennas and frequency selective surfaces are considered as well. Finally, the text introduces Matlab applications to more advanced problems such as broadband and loaded antennas, UWB pulse antennas, and microstrip antenna arrays. For students and professionals in the field of antenna design, Antenna and EM Modeling with Matlab: Strikes an important balance between text and programming manual Provides numerous examples on how to calculate important antenna/target parameters Provides means for modifying existing codes for various individual projects Includes companion website with Matlab codes and antenna geometry files The present MATLAB codes are only supported by MATLAB 5 and 6 (up to 2004).

Transmission Lines and Wave Propagation, Fourth Edition helps readers develop a thorough understanding of transmission line behavior, as well as their advantages and limitations. Developments in research, programs, and concepts since the first edition presented a demand for a version that reflected these advances. Extensively revised, the fourth edition of this bestselling text does just that, offering additional formulas and expanded discussions and references, in addition to a chapter on coupled transmission lines. What Makes This Text So Popular? The first part of the book explores distributed-circuit theory and presents practical applications. Using observable behavior, such as travel time, attenuation, distortion, and reflection from terminations, it analyzes signals and energy traveling on transmission lines at finite velocities. The remainder of the book reviews the principles of electromagnetic field theory, then applies Maxwell's equations for time-varying electromagnetic fields to coaxial and parallel conductor lines, as well as rectangular, circular, and elliptical cylindrical hollow metallic waveguides, and fiber-optic cables. This progressive organization and expanded coverage make this an invaluable reference. With its analysis of coupled lines, it is perfect as a text for undergraduate courses, while graduate students will appreciate it as an excellent source of extensive reference material. This Edition Includes: An overview of fiber optic cables emphasizing the principle types, their propagating modes, and dispersion Discussion of the role of total internal reflection at the core/cladding interface, and the specific application of boundary conditions to a circularly symmetrical propagating mode A chapter on coupled transmission lines, including coupled-line network analysis and basic crosstalk study More information on pulse propagation on lines with skin-effect losses A freeware program available online Solutions manual available with qualifying course adoption
