This course sets the groundwork for more advanced concepts in Power Electronics. The Professor was very explicit and the homework assignments were of a good strength to help ground the notions learnt.
I am very please of with course but i also want the course of power electronics related to any field i mean in FACTS devices applications so we can learn more related to new emerging technologies .

the solution for numerical question were hard because of .1 % barrier and . the answer once entered correct the database should keep that result to reduce re entry of correct answers. add more exmple so that student can do more practice before attending assignment.

Excellent introduction to the analysis of switched systems. The explanations and examples are very clearly explained.
The only drawback to this course is that it takes a lot of trying around to get used to enter the formulas into the system for the homework

It is really a nice course, the quizzes were challenging, which was nice, but it would been more helpful if proper support were provided by the mentors when someone gets stuck in a problem and the course forum are disappointing.
par Meinardo A•
I would like to receive feedback about my wrong answers after I approve the course. I really would like to know what were the correct answers.
I think that this is really important because I can learn of my mistakes.
par Mohammed M•
its a wonderful course, full of knowledge
it is great to work it side by side with the book by Dr. Erickson
I have had some trouble solving the assignments, but I managed and it feels so great to finish
par Guillaume V•
This course was quite easy.
The exercises are interesting, given with their full solution.
I think your need Pr. Erickson's book to follow the course.
Thanks to the University of Colorado Boulder.

The course is outstanding and designed in a very professional manner. This course can be made more better for students by including answers of problems and making forum more responsive.
Homework were tedius. Even if you knew the course subject, it is very easy to make mistakes on numerical questions. I think you should increase the 0.1% error margin to a higher value.
par Brandon R V•
It was a bit too hard.
I wish it had more simulations and practices with software.
Most of the assignments I had to use the simulator to have a better understanding of the subjects.
par Veda N•
It would have been better if there was an option to discuss the assignments after submission. I found the discussion forum less useful.
But overall the course was really helpful.
par Samuel C•
A good introduction to switching converters. There are thoroughly worked out examples to make the coursework accessible to students who are willing to put in the time.
par Alessandro P•
It would be nice to have a way to interact even for a limited amount of time with the professor but I assume that for the cost of the training this is hardly possible
par Jayson S•
I feel like the lecture should of went over the buck-boost and left the buck converter and the boost converter as homework problems. It was challenging, but passable.
The course was good and the assignments were brainstorming. But if we would have the solution for the wrong answers it would be good. We will get to know the mistake.
par Aayush P B•
It is exciting and meant for people who are interested to research much more about what is thought. May take some time for classmates to help you with any queries.
par Maximilian B•
Very interesting class. Videos are very good and understandable. The speed of learning is good for me. There is no support for arising questions besides the fo
par Einoras F•
I do not know... maybe too dry of a course? Info is great, but it seems like the book is a prerequisit.. Otherwise, I got a lot of knowledge, so I am happy
par Vivek R•
This is really a great introduction to power electronics. The only thing I disliked was you need to type in your answers accurate up to 8 decimal digits.
par Davide C•
The contents of the course are very good. Easy to follow. However, the quality of the videos is very poor. For this reason, I give 4 stars instead of 5.
par Cole M•
clear and concise. could improve by making homework questions more tolerant in significant figures, but overall I would definitely recommend this course
par Andrew N•
Great information, nice pace, only complaint is Homework take a long time especially entering your answers, very picky and precise, enjoy the lectures!
par Deleted A•
A fair amount of self-study is necessary to learn everything covered in-depth (especially if you haven't yet learned these as part of a formal course).
par Animesh M•
The course deals with basics of DC converters in a simple way. The learning process is simple, interesting and you can understand the topics quickly.
par Saraswathi V•
Sometimes challenging, fun if you like solving circuits. Quite simple once you get the hang of it. Only struggled a lot to do the Week2 assignment.
par Niko B•
Quiz does'nt have any explenation, after you submit and pass there should be something that tells you the answer of what you didn't write correctly
