Wenhan, Jason (2014) Regulated current source. Internship Report, Murdoch University.



Electrical Power Engineering provides a fantastic opportunity for Murdoch University bachelor students to develop professional knowledge and skills. Until finish all study, they can have a stronger support and much confident when they going to the real engineering company to work. Students have the choices to do the research thesis or an internship in a relevant industry company. The internship is a great experience for students go through the real industry working and this important experience will help them has a better understanding of the real engineer life. The company has decided a project with university for the student and during the period, and the industry supervisor was the major responsible to the student. Student also need report back regularly the project’s progress and take both of the academic supervisor’s and industry supervisor’s advice to fix the project.

This report is the final task of the internship program. The internship provides a valuable experience to work with other electronic engineer for the past four (4) months at Red Phase Instruments. The purpose of this internship is to test the student how much knowledge they have mastered until now, and it will performance by a project. The project was to create a regulated current source by using NI LabVIEW, myRIO and H-bridge circuit. Over this period, student was doing this project by himself and the industry supervisor was only gives a help if needed.

This report provided massive information about the project. It was separated to nine (9) sections and each section was talked about one part of the project design. Student must fully understand all of knowledge in the project and also must have a strong ability of time management. There were a lot of challenges in different parts and student has to solve them in a limit time. The project was all about the electronic work, some of new software and knowledge were also a big challenge for this project.

After the full testing, the main part of product has been approved with a satisfactory performance. But there are still few parts that can be improved which include the real-time module and the remote control PC system.
