Intended learning outcomes

The course will provide basic knowledge of antenna theory and technology, and introduce the basic theory that underpins antenna design technology. After this course the student should

  • Be able to interpret different parameters and properties used to characterize antennas.
  • Analyse the basic antenna problems.
  • Perform and master fundamental descriptions of antenna properties.
  • Critically formulate an appropriate model and calculate properties of common antenna types.

Course content

  • Fundamentals of antenna
  • Electromagnetic wave propagation and power flow
  • Common antenna types
  • Antenna array techniques
  • Systems and characterization considerations
  • Antenna matching techniques

 

Teaching and working methods

The course will include lectures, laborations, laboratory report and a written exam. The course includes three computer laborations and one measurment laboration.
