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.

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
par Mirko Z•
The course is well constructed and everything is detailed taught. It is a good course for people who want to have a glance of what is power electronics.
par Harshvardhan T•
The course content is engaging and assignment/homework is pretty challenging so we can enjoy it. Thank you Prof. Erickson for guiding me in this course.
par Mustansar h s•
Thank you so much sir to a new way very amazing I learn alot of new calculation .
Thank you coursera to providing the wonderful paltfome for learning
par Amshumaan R K•
Thorough basics here in the course for non isolated converters in Course #1. The modeling with input filters and such are relevant to the industry too.
par Chinmaya K•
I have very much satisfied with the course and professor. He explained very clearly and slowly, so the concepts were clarified at that moment itself.
par Nicolas S•
The course is well structured and the explanations are easy to understand. The homework is similar to what you would be given when attending a regu
par Apurv S•
The course is challenging and awesome as far as the explanation of concepts is concerned.The questions in the sample problems are also very good.

This course has been a real confidence booster for a student like me who is returning to the field of Power Electronics after a gap of two years.
par Luciano B•
A very outstanding approach on DC-DC converters. I really recommend and expect to complete all 6 steps of this Power Electronics Specialization.
par Naresh T•
through this cource i learnt modelling of DC-DC conveerters and efficiency caliculation. tthe concepts are explained very easy manner.thank you
par Wayne L•
An excellent course for those who enjoy formal education. A little rough when balancing work load with the course, but well worth the material.
par Anik M•
COURSE MATERIALS AND INSTRUCTOR TEACHING WAS VERY MUCH HELPFUL . I AM A UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT SO IT WILL BE BENEFICIAL FOR ME IN THE LONG RUN.
par Nguyen H•
It should be the best course for new learners in P.E. Great lectures, instructor. The homework was well-design to revise the lesson. Thanks!
par Subramaniam S•
LEARNT THE BASICS OF POWER ELECTRONICS, THE DC TRANSFORMER MODELLING, LOSSES AND EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT IN STEADY STATE and the hands on LTSPICE
par Utku K•
A very good beginning to the topic. Using together with the notes and downloadable slides of the videos makes everything easier to comprehend
par Saad A•
I found this course very helpful as my MS research is all about converters and this course has made me clear about the basics of converters.
par Dehming T•
Tests your understanding about the basic power electronic material that may seem easy on first sight. Takes fundamentals to the next level.
par Abubakar M•
Excellent overall 1st course of the specialization. The assignments were very challenging I felt. Definitely will continue with 2nd course.
