The Power Electronics Laboratory for electrical engineering studies has a tradition of almost 40 years (1974). It was conceived as a teaching and research laboratory in a relatively new technical domain involving important aspects of the electricity: static energy conversion, energy management, power quality, etc.
Trying to keep up with the extraordinary development of power electronics, in recent years the teaching lab has been completely restructured and modernized to be able to offer didactic applications from the simple to the complex in a practical manner. Currently, it may be listed more than 30 laboratory applications, most of them achieved with open case and modular equipments designed and manufactured in the laboratory as applied projects. The majority of the didactic applications are devoted to the modern switch-mode converters achieved with power transistors, integrated power modules and integrated drivers. Besides the equipments made for didactic purpose, the laboratory includes many power electronic structures especially designed for research experiments.
The paper for each laboratory application available on the site is conceived in three parts. The first part treats the theoretical aspects (course support) related to a power electronic structure, the second part describes the laboratory set-up necessary to study the practical aspects of the structure operation and the last part presents the procedures to follow in order to accomplish the lab application objectives.
