Quanser Energy Systems Board

Prepare students for energy systems engineering applications

The Quanser Energy Systems Board is intended to provide a safe, hands-on introduction to electrical power systems. The board uses scaled down power systems to offer students a reasonable benchtop form factor. Designed exclusively for the NI ELVIS III platform and LabVIEW™, the board also exposes students to industry-grade instrumentation, measurement and control fundamentals.


Product Details

Power electronics have long been a cornerstone topic of electrical and electronic engineering. However, it is often difficult to interact with power systems and signals in a meaningful way because the voltages involved are often dangerously high. The Quanser Energy Systems board uses scaled down power systems to offer students a reasonable benchtop form factor. Despite the smaller size, the electrical design and dynamics of the circuits and signals involved remain analogous to the larger systems they represent.
