The experiments are carried out on training panels in panel frames.


  • Protective measures and electrical safety
  • Circuit assembly and wiring according to circuit diagrams
  • Use of commercial measuring instruments: hand-held multimeters and oscilloscopes

Static converter valves with gate turn-off can be used to assemble a variety of DC choppers (DC/DC converters). Three different control methods are used for this:

  • Pulse width modulation
  • Pulse sequence modulation
  • Two position control

The equipment set is suitable both for student experiments in a lab using low voltage (400 V three-phase) and on a mobile trolley for demonstrations by teachers in a classroom. The experiment procedures are contained in a printed manual.

The target group is made up of commercial apprentices and students of electrical machine construction. The course offers experiments at an intermediate level and also allows for the necessary insight into machine behaviour for scientific interpretation at undergraduate level.
