RealTime Power Electronics Teaching Software by OPAL-RT TECHNOLOGIES is part of an educational laboratory that combines software, hardware, and courseware to teach power electronics to university undergraduate students. Students can experiment and learn power electronics, such as converters, rectifiers, and inverters, including the control logic with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid control prototyping (RCP) tools commonly used in innovative power electronics industry research and development.

The tutorial set is designed to work with both OPAL-RT and NI hardware, specifically the NI cRIO-9068 controller, and comes in four modules:

Module 1: DC-DC converter
Module 2: AC-DC rectifier
Module 3: DC-AC converter
Module 4: Three-phase, three-level neutral-point-clamped converter

The OPAL-RT and NI collaboration enables power electronics students and teachers to take advantage of expert resources and create enhanced user communities for knowledge sharing.
