The goal of this course is to introduce the working knowledge of electromagnetic wave theory and transmission lines with applications. Especially, the transmission of electromagnetic waves in free space is emphasized. The polarization of EM wave, which is crucial in communication systems, is introduced. This course starts with Faraday Law of Induction and it builts Maxwell’s equations with the introduction of displacement current. Circuit theory specifically adopted for transmission lines is also targeted. High power microwave transmission systems, waveguides and introduction to antenna theory are targeted as the applicatiıons of Maxwell’s equations.
