The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) continuously develops new design and education resources for students. One area of focus for students in the Power Electronics curriculum track is the development of a design center that explores Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) control of power electronics. Utilizing MathworksÂ® and XILINXÂ® software to interface the FPGA with a voltage source converter (VSC), students gain experience with digital design, simulation, and hardware testing. This thesis focuses on the design, implementation and testing of a Student Design Center (SDC) employing an FPGA based digital controller. This thesis especially concentrates on the hardware interface between the FPGA and the power electronics and the development of laboratory procedures for students utilizing the design center.
