Power electronics circuits are dynamic systems with a high number of successive switching states. Their principle of operation is difficult to teach in lectures with printed material and presentation slides only. Therefore, in this project software shall be developed that enables students to simulate electrical circuits and to understand their principle of operation by means of animated schematics. Dynamic processes and parameter dependencies can be illustrated much easier with animated simulation than with static media. MATLAB/Simulink has been chosen as the simulation platform due to its intuitive use. Many students are already familiar with it from undergraduate courses and projects.
