The course should be taught earlier in the specialization.

The lesson was a concept and informative explanation

Excellent course! I had learned a lot about inductors and magnetic elements that I would usually take for granted while designing power electronic systems. The intricacies of the design of filter inductors were extremely beneficial. I especially enjoyed week 3 of the course, where the proximity effect led to an unexpected rise in power consumption in the high frequency regime.

great course!!, I bet a lot of people will be interested into a second part to this course!!, keep up the good work
