The University of Minnesota through CUSP has made extensive educational material on power electronics, motor controls and power systems available at free of cost. CUSP is a consortium of over 225 universities headed by Prof. Ned Mohan and has the sole objective of making power electronics more widely taught across US universities. To achieve this, years of research has been sunk into developing course materials and laboratory equipments. To further this goal, a powerful yet simple to use numerical simulation and rapid real-time prototyping platform, Sciamble Workbench, was developed and made freely accessible to academic institutions.
This project was developed at the University of Minnesota, supported by grant from the Office of Naval Research with Prof. Ned Mohan as PI.
