Along with the development of power electronics technologies, the importance of converter systems grows in the widely understood economy.

Simulation programs enable to broaden the didactic offer for technical schools and universities and increase the self-education opportunities. The use of computer simulations often helps to understand difficult phenomena occurring in the operation of converter systems. Information obtained during simulation tests enable the verification of the knowledge gained by pupils, students and engineers in real model laboratories.

The article presents the application of the selected simulation programs in broadening the knowledge of converter systems.
