The Lab-Volt 0.2-kW Electromechanical Training System (EMS), Model 8001, is a modern modular instructional program. It represents an approach to teaching electric power technology through laboratory observations. The program, presented in four subsystems, deals with the different techniques associated with the generation and use of electrical energy. The subsystems cover the common machines, and each subsystem is offered with its courseware presented in a student manual. Each subsystem is available as a package that consists of the equipment necessary to perform the laboratory exercises presented in the correlated student manual.
