The PEMCWebLab includes a series of virtual and remote experiments from applied electrical engineering. It is based on a Leonardo da Vinci II pilot project. It presents a contribution to innovation and improvement of the quality of professional training in Europe.

PEMC = Power Electronic and Motion Control - in the fact it presents a field of topics of project modules.

Funded Within

Leonardo da Vinci 2006 EU Programme

Project Number


Project Duration

2 years: 1 Oct. 2006 - 31 Dec. 2008

Contracting Institution

Brno University of Technology
Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication Technology

Co-ordinating Institution

Delft University of Technology,  Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science
Project co-ordinator: Prof. Dr. ir. Pavol Bauer

Target groups

1 - Those, who need to get/refresh the latest knowledge in EE:
     secondary school teachers, trainers, and non-graduates: secondary school- and university students
     and the students facing a mismatch between bachelor and master programmes
2 - Experienced graduates in electrical engineering (EE) adapting to continuous changes in technology
3 - Unemployed graduated originally in EE but not working for a longer period in their profession
4 - Disabled people having usually difficulties to attend regularly the courses
5 - Private enterprises wishing to train the employees
6 - Young engineers still refining their speciality


The outputs from the project present:

  • Distance and virtual laboratories approached via web, visualisation.
  • Layout of the measured system and measurement results obtained via Internet.
  • Teaching material (in electronic form: guidelines, manuals, and documentation in English and other languages).

The virtual and remote experiments cover these fields:

  • Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering (2 modules).
  • Power Electronics modules (6 modules).
  • Electrical Machines (3 modules).
  • Electro-Mechanical and Motion Control Systems (6 modules).

Specific results

The expected specific results are:

  • Learning objectives for distance experimental education.
  • Guidelines for project oriented measurements with learning objectives for distance and /or virtual practical education.
  • Synthesis oriented experimental measurements.
  • Technology and technical documentation for distance practical education and measurements via the Internet.
  • Different designed measurements each with its own philosophy.

PEMC means also a part of the name of EPE-PEMC Council - International Scientific Non-profit Council with the seat in Budapest that associates mainly (Middle European professors and researchers, active in the area of power electronics and motion control). Majority of the project partners is associated in the EPE-PEMC Council.
