The Laboratory of Power Electronics provides workplaces for students to compose and analyze electronic circuits, study stands/workplaces for analysis of supercapacitor charging/discharging processes and motor operation as a supercapacitor load; IGBT transistor and IGBT-based converter studies and testing; comprehensive studies and testing of thyristors and rectifiers; modern measuring instruments required for laboratory experiments and power and auxiliary supply converters for rail vehicles built in the Department.
The Laboratory of Electrical Drives, completely updated in 2010, now accommodates practical units for R&D. Thus a provision is made to novel ideas to immediately reach the students. The laboratory is equipped with different types of electrical drives, soft starters, frequency converters, robots (incl. modern IRB 1600-5/1,45) and other devices. In addition, the lab accommodates two study stands with frequency converters ACS 800, a stand with a soft starter and a stand for frequency control of a linear drive.
The Laboratory of Electrical Lighting is intended for control system studies of lamps and lighting, provided with luminophor and high pressure lamp stands to acquire practical skills, study stands DALI-control system, DSI-control system, and DALI X-touchbox.
Industry Automation Laboratory represents a model of an industrial production workshop. The equipment consists of a number of modules, including a numerically controlled milling machine, a seven degree freedom servicing industrial robot, a multi-pallet conveyer for intermediate transport, a testing and distribution device for piecework, an assembling mechanism with a five degree freedom robot, a sorting machine with a manipulator, and a three servodriver storing module.
The Laboratory of Electrical Apparatus and Sensors provides facilities for practical work: a stand for protection switches for load, protection and fault currents, a stand for testing of protection switches, a stand for relays and pressure sensors, stands for study of communication possibilities and start parameters of an asynchronous motor, plus all measuring instruments for testing electrical installations, parameter measurement and simulation of installation circuits.
The Laboratory of CAD and E-Study is equipped with 12 computers and relevant software (see below) for project task solution, a server and a network printer Canon iR-1600. In 2010 a new interactive IR board QWB200 and a multimedia projector Optoma EX525ST were supplied by Qomo.
E-study section is equipped with two Internet-based frequency converter control stands on the basis of ALTIVAR 71 and a soft starter laboratory task stand on the basis of ALTISTART 48 that facilitate Internet-based performance of all laboratory tasks and acquisition of results.
In addition, the laboratory is supplied with equipment for work with IGBT transistors, step-by-step drive and servostands and a study stand for a three motor three frequency converter to examine problems of moment control, a computer-controlled elevator model, and stands for automation of lighting and ventilation.
