Abstract

The objective of the current paper is to present recent results on e-learning, including a virtual laboratory, designed for education of power electronics. The e-learning curriculum is suitable for both academic and industrial education in the frame of vocational training. It contains multimedia-rich presentation screens to teach the principles of the respective phenomena; furthermore, the interactive parts strongly support the deepening of the fresh knowledge. The interactive calculation tools facilitate the fast and simple model-development in web browsers for several often-used power electronic circuits (eg. static and dynamic models of DC-DC converters). Providing access to real circuits via online laboratory experiments is the next step for the trainees, allowing the change of several circuit parameters and the continuous monitoring of the system, even from long distances. It can have an important role in distance education too.
