1. To use the formulation of Electromagnetic fields with agility, moving from the temporal domain to the phasor domain and vice-versa.

2. To understand the meaning of fields boundary conditions.

3. To use the general expression of the wave equation for the electric field in the frequency domain. Know the expression of the plane wave solution. Understand parameters such as phase constant, wavelength and phase velocity. Obtain the expression of the magnetic field associated with the wave from the electric field and vice versa. As well as the propagation direction vector.

4. To calculate the power density from the amplitude of the associated electric field. Manage the concept of power density. Analyze the type of polarization that a wave presents by studying the orientation of the electric field vector.

5. To manage the concept of reflection and transmission in cases of incidence perpendicular to the interface plane between dielectrics and between dielectric and conductor. Handle Snell's Laws in terms of the reflectance and refraction phenomena of the wave, applied to the problem of oblique incidence of the electromagnetic wave in the interface surface of two dielectric media

6. Analyze electrical circuits when the wavelength of the signal is comparable to the electrical size of the circuit. Know the distributed model of the transmission line by means of concentrated elements.

7. Know the general expression of the wave equation in voltages and currents in the phasor domain, as well as the expression of the solution. And relate parameters such as characteristic impedance, phase constant, wavelength and phase velocity. Learn to handle the approaches to lines of low losses but finite, and line without losses.

8. Understand that the presence of the reflected wave causes the appearance of the standing wave. Knowing how to propose the standing wave solution with open circuit and short circuit load impedance condition. Know how to shift the reflection coefficient and the impedance along a transmission line.

9. To calculate the power along the line. To understand that the power is constant along the line even if the voltage is not due to reflections.

10. To use the expressions that relate the elements of the circuital model of the transmission line with the geometry of the coaxial, microstrip and stripline lines.

26) SOLUTION

The following training activities will be developed:

Theory lessons where the main concepts of the subject will be explained, including examples and applications.

Practical classes of problems where the emphasis will be placed on aspects of the procedure in the resolution of problems.

Laboratory classes where the practical experimentation of the concepts developed in class will be shown.

Lessons in theory and problem-solving will take place simultaneously on the blackboard and slides

with a computer.

Students will be provided with a collection of problems prior to their resolution in the class.

The professor will receive the students in his office during the specified tutoring hours, in order to

solve doubts, expand concepts, etc.

It is highly recommended to attend these tutorials for better use of the grade.

Students will be given exams of previous calls.

It will be ensured that all the material of the subject is available to students through the Virtual Campus.

**Annotation**: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.
