TNE083 Antenna Theory, 6 ECTS credits.

For:   ED   ELE   SY   Y  


Prel. scheduled hours: 44
Rec. self-study hours: 116

  Area of Education: Technology

Main field of studies: Electrical Engineering

  Advancement level (G1, G2, A): A

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 appropriate models and calculate properties of common antenna types.

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
RF Electronics

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

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

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