The Power Electronics Laboratory of EEE Department, IIT Guwahati was established in the year 2015. This instructional laboratory was established with the aim to impart education in the field of ubiquitous power electronics to the students of B. Tech and M. Tech as well as being a research lab for the research scholars. The lab has the adequate infrastructure in terms of equipments and instruments as well as trainer kits and simulation softwares for carrying out the experiments, projects and academic lab classes for the students.
A brief summary of the available lab equipments and instruments are:
