Annotation Communication line design. Classification of cable, insulating materials, protective covers. Electromagnetic processes in symmetrical, coaxial cable, waveguides. Design optimization. Electromagnetic compatibility. Mutual influence, rationing, protection. Shielding theory. Corrosion. Line construction, design, operation. The course includes both theory and communication lines measurements in the laboratory study. The international standards relating to the use of communication lines have been dealt with. Students are prepared both for practical work with lines of communication, and further studies in Master Course..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
Acquire theoretical knowledge of the lines of communications and practical skills in carrying out the calculations for the design of communication lines. Students will be able to measure the communication lines and to assess the results and draw conclusions competently.. To navigate communication line applications in telecommunications networks, demonstrating their importance in solving various technical problems.
Learning outcomes
