A new power electronics laboratory has been constructed at the University of Missouri-Rolla. Key components of the laboratory are a set of custom-designed hardware and software tools. The novel hardware tools include five mobile power electronics testbeds that each contain the semiconductor devices, gate-drive boards, voltage and current sensors, and computer interface connections required to study a wide range of circuit topologies and control techniques. Novel software tools include a set of virtual instruments used for control, data capture, and data analysis. A description of these tools, along with their use in power electronics courses, laboratory exercises, and student research projects, is presented.
