Arbeitsgruppe Mechatronik, D-ELEK
Projekttyp: Gemeinschaft aufbauend
Keywords: Java applets, html
Knowhow: Java Programmierung, schnelle-Finite-Element-Algorithmen, schnelle numerische Schaltungssimulation, Leistungselektronik, intuitive Benutzeroberflächen, Darstellung nicht-europäischer Sprachen in HTML, Animation und Grafikverarbeitung mit Java

The Interactive Power Electronics Seminar (iPES) is a new software package for teaching of fundamentals of power electronic circuits and systems. iPES is constituted by HTML text with Java applets for interactive animation, circuit design and simulation and visualization of electromagnetic fields and thermal issues. It comprises an easy-to-use self-explaining graphical user interface. The software needs just a standard web-browser, i.e. no installations are required. iPES can be accessed via the World Wide Web or by a stand-alone PC from a CD-ROM by students and professionals. Due to the underlying software technology iPES is very flexible. It could be used for on-line learning and could easily be integrated into an e-learning platform. The e-learning software is available at no costs at in English, German, Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Spanish. The project is still under development and the web page is updated in about 4 weeks intervals.
