INTRODUCTION:
Electromagnetic theory is concerned with the study of charges at rest and in motion. Electromagnetic
principles are fundamental to the study of electrical engineering. Electromagnetic theory is also required
for the understanding, analysis and design of various electrical, electromechanical and electronic systems.
Electromagnetic theory can be thought of as generalization of circuit theory. Electromagnetic theory deals
directly with the electric and magnetic field vectors where as circuit theory deals with the voltages and
currents. Voltages and currents are integrated effects of electric and magnetic fields respectively.
Electromagnetic field problems involve three space variables along with the time variable and hence the
solution tends to become correspondingly complex. Vector analysis is the required mathematical tool with
which electromagnetic concepts can be conveniently expressed and best comprehended. Since use of
vector analysis in the study of electromagnetic field theory is prerequisite, first we will go through vector
algebra.
Applications of Electromagnetic theory:
This subject basically consist of static electric fields, static magnetic fields, time-varying fields & it’s
applications.
One of the most common applications of electrostatic fields is the deflection of a charged particle such as
an electron or proton in order to control it’s trajectory. The deflection is achieved by maintaining a
potential difference between a pair of parallel plates. This principle is used in CROs, ink-jet printer etc.
Electrostatic fields are also used for sorting of minerals for example in ore separation. Other applications
are in electrostatic generator and electrostatic voltmeter.
The most common applications of static magnetic fields are in dc machines. Other applications include
magnetic deflection, magnetic separator, cyclotron, hall effect sensors, magneto hydrodynamic generator
etc.
Vector Analysis:
The quantities that we deal in electromagnetic theory may be either scalar or vectors. Scalars are
quantities characterized by magnitude only. A quantity that has direction as well as magnitude is called a
vector. In electromagnetic theory both scalar and vector quantities are function of time and position.
A vector
can be written as,
, where,
is the magnitude and
which has unit magnitude and same direction as that of

two vectors were multiplied. The two types of vector multiplication are:
