Labs for Integrator Power Electronics Add-On Board

Students use hardware from the Integrator add-on board combined with NI ELVIS and LabVIEW software to generate a fully functional solution for teaching power electronics to students.
In these labs, students will build and interface with power electronics circuitry to experimentally learn the fundamentals. The Integrator Power Electronics Add-On Board provides a hands-on platform for teaching concepts in power electronics including transformers, rectifiers, and voltage regulators with 14 different circuits. The student is guided with step-by-step instructions to each of the 19 included labs and will use the educational board for hands-on experiments with the electric circuits, connect various power sources and meters, and conduct experiments with the studied circuits. The student will collect, display, and analyze data to come to conclusions about power electronics functions. With this add-on board, students can learn the operating principles of voltage and current regulators, converters, AC voltage and current generators, transformers, rectifiers, diodes, Zener diodes, silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs), and more.
