Chair of Power Electronics

Laboratory course power electronics (master's course; WS)


Prof. Dr.-Ing. Marco Liserre and staff

Target group:

Students of the master courses “Electrical and Information Engineering” and “Electrical and Information Engineering and Business Management”

Recommended prerequisites:

Introduction to electrical energy technology, Power Electronics I, Control Systems I, Electric Drives




The aim of this lab is to study a variable-speed drive system with a squirrel-cage induction machine. The focus is largely on the control part. The individual parts of the lab are summarized below.

1. Hardware development of a circuit for current measurement. Design of a PCB layout of this circuit.

2. Design of a control scheme for the asynchronous machine. Control design, implementation of the designed scheme in MATLAB / Simulink / PLECS, Discretization of the control and implementation in C language.

3. Implementation of the scheme. Transferring the discretized control to a microcontroller and determining of machine parameters


Will be given with the lab manual.

  • Our research is focused on the design of high efficient and reliable PWM-based power converter architectures (single-cell, multi-cell, multilevel), their modelling and control to exploit commercial as well as new power semiconductor devices with minimum over design.
    We develop controllers for electric drives and we are particularly skilled in the integration of renewable energy systems into the electric grid.
