Abstract

This article introduces a novel web-based DC motor laboratory, called NeTRe-LAB, to support teaching electrical machines. The NeTRe-LAB includes favorable animations to facilitate understanding characteristics of the DC motor, interactive DC motor models for instructive simulations, and web-based experiments with online monitoring features. To illustrate the current operations, remote access to an experimental setup of a DC motor has been provided and the speed control of it has been realized over Internet. The evaluation results have shown that the NeTRe-LAB presented in this study provides encouraging aspects, services, and support system for higher education. (C) 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
