This paper describes a new educational power electronics laboratory that was developed primarily to reinforce experimentally the fundamental concepts presented in a power electronics course. The developed laboratory combines theoretical design, simulation studies, digital control, fabrication, and verification of power-electronic circuits based on a set of hardware and software tools. The salient feature of the laboratory is that it takes the students through a step-by-step design, implementation, and digital control procedure for a set of power electronic circuits. A detailed description of the tools along with their use in the developed laboratory is presented.
