- the exam seemed very focused on just a few areas» (To some extent)

- too much tutorial really» (Yes, definitely)

- I did not know there was a trial exam until some week after it was done.» (Small extent)
- did not attened» (Small extent)
- Good trial exam, I answered small extent because I know how to resolve Gauss problems for 4 years , I think the trial exam should put the emphasize on most important things (Townsend mechanism ...)» (Small extent)
- The question on the trialexam was nothing like the problems which were solved on the tutorials. It should have been a task involving solving electric fields for different geometries, using gauss etc.» (Small extent)
- it achieved the goal: "Oh , I need to study hard for this subject.. !!" and that was helpfull. » (Large extent)

Genomsnitt: 3.58

- especially for the lectures» (Very good)
- Although, "study climate" as it is in class is not good at all. This is because almost everyone else is talking loudly and have their telephones ringing all the time. All time low on Chalmers! Every class was a disaster in this way, even when you told people to shut up they didnt. It was extra intense during tutorials when the rudeness went to offensive behaviour at many points. Also, half the class where late at EVERY class, sometimes up to 30-40 minutes late. This is typical for big masters-classes where some foreign students and some students from Lindholmen don´,t their studies seriously and ruins it for those who do. It should be discussed and rules should be set in the beginning of the period, and misbehaviour should get people kicked from the class. Teachers must be harder on telling people to shut up.» (Very good)

Good»13 44%
Excellent»8 27%

Genomsnitt: 3.86

- the teaching method was not so good.» (Poor)
- Powerpoint slide please» (Adequate)
- One thing that would be nice is some additional information on how to solve the questions for the home assignment before laborations as I believe people would get more out of doing them if they have more of an idea of what they are doing rather than just using formulas as I noticed a lot of people did.» (Good)
- too much tutorial» (Good)
- Except for what I´,ve mentioned before this is a great class with great teachers.» (Excellent)

19. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- All contents except thermal stresses»
- Tutorial problems- they were very helpful in clearing some of the concepts. Both lab experiments were very well structured. Also, the lab handouts were extremely helpful.»
- the same way of teaching it has helped a lot in learning»
- the labs, the substation visit»
- the labs.»
- NC»
- The labs»
- less tutorial and more usefulthing»
- Some more practical tutorial especially about surge arresters.»
- lecturer for the course , labs should be more in sessions rather than 2 larger once ,subject should be more practical than this year !»

20. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Beside the examination, please include a Project work consisting of Designing a High Voltage Substation. And the project could be 20-30% of the final grade.»
- The way of presenting lectures .( using modern ways instead of chalk and board)»
- Thermal and mechanical stresses should be reduced»
- A better tutor for the tutorials would be good, now there were mistakes, talking into the board instead of with the students and such.»
- tutor»
- the tutorials are really too slow. I think the final exam should better focus on the lectures instead of the labs.»
- students should not write the entire lecture all the time and it should be given as handouts.»
- tutor.»
- NC»
- The timetable for the labs (don"t have them on the same week)»
- I think the part which is talking about the mechanical and thermal stress shall be removed. In fact this subject is totally isolated from the course subject. Instead more lectures shall be served for the insulation coordination or expand more in TRV concept. »
- the totorial tutor should make better his way of delivering knowledge to student. »
- Tutorial assistant was rather inexperienced and has no command on class,he should be changed , if the lecturer would issue a compendium for students rather it may very useful to the upcoming engineers of this course»
- classroom climate, people cant be late and have to shut up. »

21. Additional comments

- It would be better if the study trip to the substation omitted from course PM which was not planned to go.»
- Visit to substation should be arranged for the coming years»
- Thommas should explain things more clearly. Also, he should look at the students more while explaining. Otherwise, it becomes difficult to follow what he is saying.»
- Please arrange a study visit for the students»
- NC»
- I would like to thank the course examiner for his effort in deliver the course in very intersting and infrmative manner. I like his way of teaching and intracting with student. Also I would like to thank the totorial asistance for his effort in solving the totorial problems. »
- Jörgen Belnow thought the subject very well , he used to explain course goals more frequently with the help of a meaningful diagram after completion of every topic . the only problem we had faced this time was tutorial assistant !»
