They include Simple diode, SCR and thyristor controlled bridge rectifier circuits and most important the Switch-Mode Power Supply SMPS.

Interactive Power Electronics Seminar (iPES)

The following Java applets are part of the Introductory Course on Power Electronics taught by Prof. Kolar at the ETH Zurich. The interactive and animated applets are used as aid for teaching in the classroom and are displayed using a laptop and a beamer. Furthermore, the applets do provide an opportunity for the students to experiment and learn at home more efficiently.

Simulations like these can be made with various methods. Client Side and Server Side. Flash, Java and Ajax(with dhtml) can be client side. Server side are numerous. Perl and CGI, Python, PHP and many more.

Small Tutorials can be made in Flash. More Flexibility and Power in Java. Ajax (implies even DHTML, JS, CSS) also good. Client only Tutors. But larger simulations or Web applications means server side computing. Here the Client side is just GUI and some basic reflexes and data caching. The other CPU/Data load is moved online to servers.

As tools are moving online even EDA, ASIC design and Chip Programming can be made into Webapps or SaaS – Software as a service. This also safeguards the IP and Codebase of developer/programmer/firms better.

Here some power electronics design info is available. Switching-Mode Power Supply Design

At Alexandre Manuel Mota‘s pages you will find – Op Amps for Everyone Design Guide, History of Switched Mode Power Supplies, DC Power Supply Handbook, SWITCHMODE Power Supply Reference Manual, Linear & Switching Voltage Reference Handbook. The above PDF files seem to be good study material, before you design and build your next power supply, SMPS or AC/DC converter. – delabs
