TEACHING

SOLUTIONS

Thanks to their modular nature, imperix products are ideally suited for teaching applications. They indeed possess all the features – ranging from ease-of-use to robustness – to be safely put in the hands of students.

Imperix products offer a very flexible way to conduct laboratories or students projects at the graduate or undergraduate level.

Active learning

Enable students to discover things by themselves and confront their theoretical knowledge to real-world operation early. Iterations with modeling or simulation studies are also possible.

Real-world challenges

Force students to face system-level issues such as start-up or shutdown procedures, protection or cooling. Power electronics always require to process some energy and not only data!

Unified equipment

Use (or reuse) the same equipment for both teaching and research. Imperix products cover a broad range of ratings and applications and are usable from the most common software enviromnents.

DEVELOP AND BUILD UP SHOWCASE SYSTEMS WITHIN MINUTES!

  • Use our building blocks as you would use LEGOS™ and create simple (or more advanced!) converters very easily.
  • Thanks to our ready-to-use power and control hardware, you no longer need to worry about practical issues. Demonstrating and experimenting on control algorithms can be your only focus.
  • Simulink™ or C++ code gives you complete freedom and direct access to all control variables. Should you like to start with more than a blank page, imperix also provides a growing library of code examples to help you set started.

LET’S PLUG AND PLAY!

A library-based approach

In classroom applications, imperix hardware is often used as of-the-shelf equipment, that can be mobilized upon variable needs. Sometimes, a controller and few modules is all it takes, while sometimes extra sensors and multiple controllers are required.

SELECT THE EQUIPMENT

such as power modules, sensors and controller.

BuilD the electric circuit

using the available rack-moutable enclosured and DIN rails.

Connect the control side

by simply wiring the cables to the controller.

TEST the OPERATION

generating control from C++ code or an existing Simulink™ scheme.

DON’T PLAY WITH SAFETY!

A multi-layered protection scheme

As the protection of the users and the equipment is of utmost importance in teaching applications, multiple types of protections can be implemented.

In any case, the B-Box RCP controller embeds a hardware protection that is always present and forces the user to acknowledge any issue before continuing operation.

Software

Abnormal conditions can easily be detected in software. The reliability of this approach is however limited to that of the software developed by the user.

Controller hardware

The B-Box RCP controller features programmable and software-independent protections. This offers a flexible and easy to use protection mechanism.

Power stage

All power modules possess on-board over-voltage, over-current and over-temperature thresholds, offering a last-resort protection, although not easily configurable.

Instant portability

With B-Box RCP, it is very easy to move from one project to another.
All it takes it to reload a hardware config an dthe project files.
