The laboratory and equipment support power electronics measurement for multiple student and faculty research projects. It is now supporting Ph.D. work in neural networks for harmonic estimation and elimination. It has also supported high school students from Kalamazoo Area Math and Science Center who learn to do basic I/O programming in the real world. In the lab, a power pole board can be re-configured to support Buck, Boost, and Buck-Boost converters. The same board can also be re-configured as a single-phase DC – AC inverter. The power pole board can be interfaced to a Motorola HC12-based microcontroller board and can used for various power electronics circuit configurations and applications.

Available equipment

  • 800 V DC-DC power supply
  • Power pole board
  • Motorola HC12-based microcontroller
