Energy Systems Analysis

In this lab manual, students complete hands-on activities to investigate the essential functionality and behavior of energy conversion systems from AC-DC, DC-DC, DC-AC, and AC-AC. Further consideration is then given to some of the most common power systems that are found in everything from computers to modern electric cars and wind generators.
