Theoretical Electrical Engineering I: Time-Independent Fields

Organisation of courses at the Institute of Electromagnetic Theory during the summer term 2020:

Exercises and lectures will take place using the video conferencing system zoom at the times given in university calendar and in Stud.IP.  The corresponding conference links will be made available in Stud.IP in the overview of the lecture / exercise (in the category “Dates” under the category “Announcements”). Please familiarize yourself with zoom. All further information will follow in the first lectures. All exercises start after these.

Prof. Christian Schuster, Summer Term, in German

Students learn to explain the fundamental formulas, relations, and methods of the theory of time-independent electromagnetic fields. They can explicate the principal behavior of electrostatic, magnetostatic, and current density fields with regard to respective sources. They can describe the properties of complex electromagnetic fields by means of superposition of solutions for simple fields. The students are aware of applications for the theory of time-independent electromagnetic fields and are able to explicate these.

Specifically students learn to apply Maxwell’s Equations in integral notation in order to solve highly symmetrical, time-independent, electromagnetic field problems. Furthermore, they are capable of applying a variety of methods that require solving Maxwell’s Equations for more general problems. The students can assess the principal effects of given time-independent sources of fields and analyze these quantitatively. They can deduce meaningful quantities for the characterization of electrostatic, magnetostatic, and electrical flow fields (capacitances, inductances, resistances, etc.) from given fields and dimension them for practical applications.
