Electrical Vehicle Technology, Power Electronics, and PLC Laboratory

This laboratory is used for ECE 497 Electrical Vehicle Technology and ECE493 Power Electronics. The laboratory has two electric vehicle test setups that emulate a hybrid electric vehicle and an electric vehicle. Additionally, there is hardware to perform power electronics experiments for 6 groups. This includes dc/dc and dc/ac power conversion. Students can also use the six digital signal processors to learn about the control of power conversion hardware. Additionally, there are multiple PLC test benches with assorted equipment to teach students about basic control and automation. The lab is located in EGB168.
