POWER ELECTRONICS AND SIMULATION LAB
The Power Electronics and Simulation Laboratory is a unique opportunityfor you to design and build. Power electronic circuits are the backbone of almostevery modern convenience. Automobiles, cell-phones, laptop and desktopcomputers, television sets, and kitchen appliances, among many other systems,require power electronics circuits to convert electrical energy to a useful form.The creation of a successful power electronic circuit almost always requiresmore than the application of a set of analytical techniques. The most elegantexamples are crafted by engineers who have a rich understanding of how to maketrade-offs amongst all the parts of a system, e.g., thermal, mechanical, electrical,and sometimes software. For this reason, we make special efforts to expose you toa huge number of demonstrations developed from a wide range of engineeringdisciplines, and to provide exciting laboratory experiences that let you try thetechniques you learn on practical hardware.
