Three types of training activities are proposed: Lectures , problem classes and labs.
ECTS credits in all cases include the share of staff or team work by the student .
THEORY LESSONS (4.4 ECTS)
Theory classes will be lectures on board with using transparencies or other media to illustrate certain concepts . These classes are supplemented by explanations actual examples of applied electromagnetism and professional sound systems .
Through these sessions students will acquire the basic content of the course. The student , based on the explanations of teachers, should deepen the concepts explained , solving and developing cases that will arise in lectures .
Problems ( 0.6 ECTS)
For the class of problems , students will have in advance of the relevant statements.
In this type of class students will be organized into small groups so actively involved in solving problems .
Problem solving by students will serve to assimilate the concepts presented in class theory in a more applied context and self-assess their knowledge.
The kinds of problems include pooling of individual solutions and joint correction, which should serve to consolidate knowledge and develop the ability to analyze and communicate the relevant information for troubleshooting.
PRACTICES ( 1 ECTS )
Basically consist of demonstrations of basic concepts in the laboratory and computers, in which the student participates actively .
Practices are held by computer , preferably using Matlab, and have the following contents:
Practice 1: SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION.
- Addition of signal levels
Practice 2: SPHERICAL WAVES.
- Constructive and destructive fields emitted by ideal point source (concept of radiation pattern of an array of isotropic sources) contributions .
Practice 3 : PLANE WAVES
Part I: Diagram standing wave at normal incidence .
Part II : Polarization of plane waves .
Practice 4: GUIDED WAVES
Part I: Brillouin diagram and impedance mode.
Part II : Analysis of TEMN modes for a traveling wave ( lossless case ) .
