The ways in which computer simulation can assist power electronics education at the undergraduate level are described. It is shown that using PSpice as an instructional tool for an introductory-level power electronics course has increased students' abilities to comprehend the behavior of several power electronics circuits. The graphics post-processor Probe, which accompanies PSpice, is used to display voltage and current waveforms. Probe's capability of doing numerical computations reduces the effort needed to determine power-related quantities in nonlinear circuits. Fourier analysis capabilities of PSpice enable harmonics to be investigated. Examples of PSpice simulations are included
