An electromagnetic field is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field. The electromagnetic field extends indefinitely throughout space and describes the electromagnetic interaction. The field can be viewed as the combination of an electric field and a magnetic field. Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are areas of energy that surround electrical devices. The electric field is produced by stationary charges, and the magnetic field by moving charges (currents); these two are often described as the sources of the field. Electromagnetic Theory covers the basic principles of electromagnetism: experimental basis, electrostatics, magnetic fields of steady currents, and electromagnetic induction, Maxwell's equations, propagation and radiation of electromagnetic waves, electric and magnetic properties of matter, and conservation laws. Electromagnetic Field Theories for Engineering gives a comprehensive fundamental knowledge of electric and magnetic fields, which is required to understand the working principles of generators, motors and transformers. This knowledge is also necessary to analyze transmission lines, substations, insulator flashover mechanism, transient phenomena, etc. Recently, academics and researches are working for sending electrical power to a remote area by designing a suitable antenna. In this case, the knowledge of electromagnetic fields is considered as important tool. This book provide fundamental knowledge of electromagnetic fields and waves in a structured manner.
