Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to study the wireless transmission channel in real environments focusing on wave propagation for planning of terrestrial and satellite wireless links. The syllabus includes both deeper theoretical foundations of radio wave propagation in the atmosphere as well as ITU-R design procedures for terrestrial and satellite, fixed and mobile communications in various frequency bands.

Requirements:

-

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Spherical wave in free space, Friis equation, Fresnel zones, reflection, scattering, refraction, and diffraction in the atmosphere

2. Transmission media for specific frequency bands and communication services, principles of electromagnetic wave propagation in the atmosphere

3. Propagation of the space wave in the troposphere

4. Empirical and deterministic radiowave propagation models

5. Line-of-sight links, link power budgets

6. Mobile links, wave propagation in built-up areas

7. Wideband parameters of mobile wireless channel

8. Interference and frequency planning in cellular networks

9. Free space optics links

10. Wave propagating in anisotropic environment of the ionosphere, HF radio links

11. Power budgets of satellite links

12. Coverage planning for satellite links

13. Introduction to other propagation channels (ground-to-air, troposcatter, propagation in tunnels etc.)

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Introduction, basic concepts

2. Calculations of basic propagation parameters

3. Usage of ITU-R recommendations

4. General empirical model

5. Link budget of a fixed link

6. Link budget of a mobile link

7.-9. Terrestrial fixed link design - project

10.-12. Satellite link power budget design - project

13. Interference calculations

14. Presentations of projects results

Study Objective:

The goal of the course is to learn fundamentals of propagation of electromagnetic waves in the atmosphere for planning of wireless links and appropriate power budgets calculations.
