Power Systems, Electrical Machinery, and Power Electronics Laboratory


Applications of the compulsory course Energy Conversion Principles and the selective courses of the Power Systems specialization area are carried out in this laboratory. Students perform experiments on various electric motors and generators that they may encounter in the industry, power electronic systems, and energy transmission lines protection and operation in these laboratories.

In addition to student experiments, there are laboratory-based energy quality analyzer for energy quality research, high-precision signal generators, high-speed data acquisition systems, various motors, high-power experimental system loads and simulation software.
