À propos du cours

This course familiarizes you with standards and policies of the electric utility industry, and provides you with basic vocabulary used in the business. It introduces the electric power system, from generation of the electricity all the way to the wall plug. You will learn about the segments of the system, and common components like power cables and transformers. This course is for individuals considering a career in the energy field (who have a high school diploma, at minimum, and basic knowledge of mathematics), and existing energy sector employees with less than three years of experience who have not completed similar training and would benefit from a course of foundational industry concepts. The course is a combination of online lectures, videos, readings and discussions. This is the first course in the Energy Production, Distribution & Safety specialization that explores various facets of the power sector, and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established, energy-related professional goal. To learn more about the specialization, check out a video overview at

The course was very easily explained including all the minor details it's like a journey of powers system where you get to know about all the key elements required to have the knowledge in this field.

What an Extraordinary Course, I really appreciate meeting with such a skilled professor and a tutor too.\n\nThough his main focus was on the USA and quiz were mainly focusing on the USA not globally.

Could have offered more challenges, critical thinking questions and calculations could be included. I find trivia questions could be omited, or kept if key factor is to encourage ideas for the future of power to the people. Other than that, was nice to rock back and watch. The professor does not instill confidence, would appreciate he speaks with "the professor who knows everything about the matter" flow. Not necessary to change.

Level of questions must be improved and number of question may be increased.

Old videos must be made up to date.

Some of questions options are not in correct order. I have seen "All of the above" option and "None of the above" option at the first option place or in the middle.

In the forum people discussing about the question and answer rather than topics, this should not be allowed without successful completion of course

Information was't properly arranged based on the sections and the titles. People having previous experiences on the items covered in these lectures will easily get over it but because of the lectures not being in proper manner, for those who don't have any previous ideas, won't do much good i guess. Anywway, Worked for me, Thanks to coursera. Thanks to Mr. Ilya Gringerg.

some of the course topics seemed to be more political and policy motivated than factually based. Also there seemed to be conflicting information on percentages of generation sources. Several of the photo examples of transformers and switches where in fact oil and SF6 circuit breakers and that could be very confusing to people with no exposure to this industry.

The course is informative but it is very old. The instructor also doesn't show any enthusiasm for the topic and just lists down the info as if he is reading. Lack of examples. Lack of specific details. the course is also very broad and doesn't explain why we use this and that or how each component work.

This course is really great for someone who has no knowledge in the field of electricity, power systems, and energy. The basic details have been mentioned. However, the way the lectures have been delivered is not very interesting or interactive and is very theoretical as a whole.

The course covers only the basics, and revolves around the data obtained from various authorities. It would have been much better if certain working process of devices in the protection switch gear part were explained in a little more detail.

It needs to improve some concepts, for example "All renewable energies are sutainable", that is false if you are looking for biofuels, actually in Brasil the increment of the needs of corn are deforesting the AMAZONAS!!!!
