  • Overview

    Synopsis:
    The unit covers static electric and magnetic fields and carries on to power frequency time varying fields used in AC and DC machines and wave propagation on a transmission line. 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 and AC induction motors. It links to work previously developed in EGB120 Foundations in Electrical Engineering, and prepares students for more advanced studies in EGB341 Energy Supply and Delivery.
