Ansoft Corp. (Pittsburgh) and Virginia Tech's Future Energy Electronics Center (FEEC) have teamed to develop new,

efficient power-electronics technology and an innovative graduate curriculum based on Ansoft's electronic-design software for physics-based system simulation.

"Ansoft's tools are essential for power-electronics system simulation and

are very easy for students to learn," said Dr. Jih-Sheng (Jason) Lai,

Director of the FEEC. "The software provides the advanced capabilities

needed for forward-thinking research. The ability to simulate

power-electronic circuits, digital/analog controls and electromechanical

components within a single integrated environment is extremely powerful and
