The Electrical Power Laboratory Test Set (EPLTS) System provides a complete platform for practical Power Electronics teaching. They offer tertiary institutions a robust, standardized platform for both Power Electronic laboratory experiments and developmental project work.
The EPLTS System consists of:
The ULK-INV4 is a 4-phase leg inverter system developed specifically for the Power Electronics teaching environment. It provides both undergraduate and postgraduate students with a complete, flexible, digitally controlled low power (2kW) inverter platform.
The ULK-THY3 is a flexible 3-phase thyristor rectifier system developed for the Power Electronics teaching environment to provide both undergraduate and postgraduate students with a complete, flexible, digitally controlled low power (415Vac, 5A) thyristor rectifier platform.
The ULK-LOD1 is a flexible Single Phase/DC Load box.
The ULK-LOD1 has been developed to work in conjunction with the Lab Experiments to provide an integrated teaching environment for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The Power Electronics Lab Experiments are tailored to the EPLTS hardware platforms. They present a comprehensive range of experiments ranging from fundamental power electronic switching concepts, such as diode rectification, through to closed loop current regulation of a multi-phase inverter.
Safety within the undergraduate power laboratory is paramount and the EPLTS range incorporates many essential safety features.
Each test set is easily reconfigurable, allowing them to be used in experiments ranging from single diode rectification to switching of multi-phase inverters.
The EPLTS also supports custom programming. Standard library support structures are available to aid software development and postgraduate research work.
Controller upgrades are available that include the latest Texas Instruments Microcontrollers.
