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.
Very nice course. Even if you are already familiar with power electronics, it will help you to form a system of knowledge and utilize rational approaches for task solution of any level of complicity.

This introduction is very helpful. I've taken power electronics course before but this helped a lot in clarifying things especially the introduction of volt second balance and charge balance.

I have been in the power domain for the past 4 years and this course help me understand some of the design choices that we sometimes made as the pass-downs from others experiences.. thanks!!
par Felipe K F•
This course is really good, the approach to dealing with the problems (the models proposed) make the content easier than it looks, although still demanding some time to do the assignments.
par Akashkiran S•
Even though I am an electrical student this course really helped me in setting my foundation in power electronics.I would recommend all college going students to take up this course
par Luheng Q•
well designed exercises. I have learned PMIC for one semester, and this course is a good supplement to what I have learned. In addition, the analyzing method seems to be universal.
par Karim E•
The professor explains every concept comprehensively and I could master drawing steady state wave forms for every power converter from just this course. Thanks a lot Prof. Erikson
par Mritunjay K•
This course helped me to get acquainted with Power Electronics with good problems. It would be more helpful if the solution of the assignments were discussed.
Thank you, Coursera.
par KOMARAGIRI S•
It's very great feeling for me to complete this course.All the subject inside the course are featured.This course addups to your skills in addition to addon in a resume.thank you
par Josué S C R•
Very complete course. The theorical material was incredibly explained and very useful. I think this is the most challenging course that I have taken. Thank you for everything!!!
par Scott S•
Some tough assignment questions which lead to much longer homework time than anticipated, so you need to leave ample time to complete the assignments. But, great class over-all.
par TATANG T Y•
Great course !!!
I learned a lot. What I regret is the writing of mathematical expressions which is really not intuitive. it takes a long time just to write an expression well
par Gopi R C•
I like the sample quizzes during the Lectures that are helpful in reinforcing the concepts. Also, Homework simulations are pretty helpful in the modeling of practical aspects.
par Patrick H•
I took the Power Electronics course at CU and wanted to keep my skills sharp. This online version covers the same topics at the same depth, and is absolutely worth your time.

Dr. Erickson makes power electronics accessible and fun to the beginner and expert alike. Highly recommend for any student aspiring for a career in power management design.
par Maximilian Z•
This was a good introduction to the field. I attempted it a while back. The instructors introduce LTSpice, yet it is never used? Maybe it will come up in the next courses.
par David S M H•
Good starting point for someone with EE background but hasn't specialized in power electronics. Assignments are challenging but worthwhile in doing to learn the material.
par ABU H M R•
Dr. Robert Erickson is an amazing instructor and he provided practical examples of different switched-mode converter circuits. The assignments are also quite challenging.
par Chris R•
I audited the course and found it to be a great introduction to DC modeling for power supply design. Looking forward to completing more of the Power Electronics courses.
par Rakesh R•
Very good homework problems. Doing them really tests your understanding. And it is quite challenging atleast for me....maybe because out of college for 20 years now.
par Furkan Y•
A very professional and beneficial introduction to Power Electronics. The assignments are a bit serious and time consuming. However, it is due to their seriousness.
par Javier A L C•
It's a great course, big introduction for a subject that interesting. I love to find a different aproaches from the techniques learned before. Highly recommended
par Yehia K A•
A very good introduction to a the excellent specialization courses. Reminded me with the undergraduate topics I've studied in university.
Many Thanks Dr. Erickson
par EMMANUEL K•
Interesting and well taught course. But there are too much gab between what is taught and what is required to completing the assignments. Overall, it is great!
par Yash R•
The problem sets provided greatly helped me understand the matter in depth. I feel confident and can now understand other literature on Power Electronics.
par Bibin K S•
Very informative course will well thought assignments. I would expect explanations of incorrect answers that would ideally help in correcting the students
