Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to provide a through coverage of fundamental principles of microwave engineering with focus on wireless communication system and high-speed data transmission. Besides enhancing general radio frequency circuit theory covered in previous courses, it introduces the fundamental of microwave circuit analysis and design, from electromagnetic theory to radar systems. Starting with a concise presentation of the electromagnetic theory, the course leads to passive and active microwave circuit design supported by complex Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software for high-frequency systems. After passing the course the student should know:

  • Maxwell's and Helmholtz's equations, wave solutions, TEM, TE and TM wave propagation modes, and account for the relevant propagation modes for transmission lines
  • Describe the concept of plane waves in different transmission media, polarized plane waves and plane wave reflection in mathematical form
  • Compare the electromagnetic theory with transmission line theory in order to describe transmission lines from the point of view of either field theory or the circuit model
  • Calculate the characteristic parameters of a rectangular waveguide
  • Use Smith Chart to design matching networks
  • Understand different concepts of impedance matching, i.e., narrow- and broadband impedance matching
  • Describe, analyse and design basic passive and active microwave circuits such as couplers, amplifiers, mixers, oscillators
  • Describe, analyse on system level different radarsystem, e.g., Doppler radar.
  • Use radar equation, understand radar parameters and describe different modern radar applications.
  • Carry out the design of microwave circuits using advanced simulation tools, including electromagnetic simulations

Course content

Electromagnetic theory, transmission line theory, transmission lines and waveguides, impedance matching and tuning, microwave resonators, power dividers and couplers, microwave oscillators and frequency multipliers, radar and radiometer systems.
