Interactive Power Electronics Seminar (iPES)
This is an educational module dedicated to
basic power electronic
circuits. The module includes DC/DC converters, basic diode and
thyristor converter systems, AC/DC inverter, space vector modulation
and basic signal theory. In the future there will be minor changes
(mainly additions and corrections). The material currently is available
in German, English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Spanish and French.

The following Java applets are part of the
Introductory Course on Power Electronics taught by Prof. Kolar at the
ETH Zurich. The interactive and animated applets are used as aid for
teaching in the classroom and are displayed using a laptop and a
beamer. Furthermore, the applets do provide an opportunity for the
students to experiment and learn at home more efficiently.
