Unlike Character User Interface (CUI), Graphical User Interface (GUI) does not require users to have programming knowledge. It is a platform for users to communicate with machines through visual elements like buttons, icons, and drop-down menus. With the aide of GUI, large systems achieves optimal overall system efficiency and performance. The ease of usage and comprehensiveness made sure that every smart machines built in recent years comes with a GUI for control purposes. This report specifically look in to methods of developing and improving the efficiency and reliability of the GUI for the Hybrid-Grid Converter system by means of multiprocessing and multithreading. Parallelism in program code execution for the GUI application was achieved; through multiprocessing via using the multiprocessing module provided by Python, and multithreading via Qthread in QtWidgets. At the end of this report, while multiprocessing has to be further explored, multithreading has been proven to improve overall efficiency of the GUI greatly.
