This paper describes an installation of a remote laboratory for electrical engineering students. The student’s are challenged with understanding how to set up a normal power supply, and understanding the theory behind the selection of components and configuring a power supply. The traditional laboratory setup with rewiring and troubleshooting a breadboard setup is time consuming and student’s cognitive resources is better used on understanding the aim of the experiment: how power supplies should be set up. Our hypothesis is that it is possible for the students to use this remote lab setup to gain experience in selection of components in a power supply setup with less effort than in an traditional laboratory setup, and that this will aid in their understanding of power supplies and the consequences of component selection. The feedback from the students does indicate that the hypothesis holds true.
