Aims
  • The student is able to design, construct and test a sending antenna for a wireless communication device. The working of a finite elements method (COMSOL) is understood and is applied to calculate electromagnetic radiation (antenna patterns and impedance) to optimize the antenna design.
  • The student can translate a partial differential equation problem to COMSOL and validate the result of the evaluation.
Content
Electrostatics and magnetostatics are combined in the field of electrodynamics, the mutual interaction of electric and magnetic fields. This forms the basis to understand optical effects and wireless communication. This knowledge will have to be used in the project team for the design and realization of an antenna that works as well as possible within the 100 MHz range. To support the antenna design process the Finite Element Method is introduced.
