- there was no goals stated in the course PM.» (?)
- the tutor was horrible...he was himself damn confused then how could he make us understand the and concepts/problem...also with lecturer,i didt say they (both lecturers, not tutor) were confused, but failed to deliver there knowledge...and i think this is the most important in teaching, ..to deliver the knowledge and explein concept effectively.» (The goals are difficult to understand)
- application issues should be mentioned clearer» (The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer)

- The exam questions were a bit strange. It would have been better to have questions more like the ones during the course and maybe raise the gradelimits. Instead I skipped several questions.. » (?)
- The exam was only on the lessons that Thorbjörn had, and almost nothing from the rest..» (No, not at all)
- As far as i remembered we had no tutorial on thermal losses and conductivity. Just lectures, yet the exam had a part of these questions. I also can"t recall any handouts for practicing these matters. I found the lack of this disturbing and even more was that the exam contained this.» (To some extent)
- as usual the exam is a small part of what we studied and it is not possible to say it for sure it assesses if goals are achieved. unfortunately no goals were set to say that. » (To some extent)

- please use Time Edit and time edit only. and keep it updated.» (Rather well)
- It was easy to get them and they were many, but it would be better to make a compendium out of them.» (Very well)

Genomsnitt: 3.8

- very very very very .....bad» (Poor)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- everything»
- Massimo and his lectures.»
- The spice simulations vere good! But there should be a better preparation for the home assignments in class. Otherwise every week the homework time will only be spent on preparing for the spice lab, and regular lab. (The regular lab was also good and should be kept!) This is of course good for learning, but it is also important to have time to do the recomended self study and calculations. »
- everything»
- P-spice computer sessions»
- too many converters and calculation methods are not very clear»
- PSpice laborations»
- lectures and lecture materials are good.»
- Same teachers!!»
- ......there is nothing to preserve this way..»
- LABs»
- i think need more detail in dc converter, specially in full bridge converter»
- The lecturers and "tutorial-leaders"»
- The emphsis should be given on those topics like converter and rectifiers that are being used by the manufacturers.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Computerlabs used for the PSpice simulations had several faulty computers»
- Nothing»
- the tutor should be better»
- More questions on thermal heating, conductivity etc..»
- To me the lecture slides had too small figures. Maybe there could be a complementarey course compendium with some over all theroy and principles. I found the course book a bit short in treating many subjects, with vextreemly few exampels, and more like a encyclopedia than a cousrse book. Also I think a lecturer should be very careful when he´,s writing mathematical expressions on the blackboard, to make sure they are correct, not to comfuse the students. »
- nothing »
- REduce the number of converters to be taught»
- More practical examples, show examples of hardware applications of the different converter principles»
- the number of computerexercisies should be less»
- A bit less work load.»
- at least change the tutor. please!»
- The tutor»
- The more theoretical part like converter control be deleted from the course as it consumes so much time.»

16. Additional comments

- No»
- the laborations and pspice assignments were really helpful and interesting. on pspice, one assingment on thyristors if added would have been very good.»
- I think there should be some points for all the work done in the computerlabs, because it takes so much time.»
- Very good laborations and P-spice assignments»
- More emphasis should be given more on computer based simulation like Pspice for network behaviour checking.»
