- The goal was clearly describe what a student supposed to learn, but i think that course contents is very lasge as per time to teach, even though Jörgen Blennow and Elizabeth is the best, there way of teaching is superb.» (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)
- very good goals and i can say they are almost fulfilled.» (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)

- The exam was heavy in a scense that the theoretical questions were too timeconsuming (for me about 2.5 h if not more, which is not in accordance with the respective points on the exam which is 50%). Then there was no time to think when it came to the calculative questions. I got about 5 minutes to think at the the only question I needed to, and I didn´,t take any other kind of breaks, but was writing for four hours! And even if I had figured out how to calculate that exercise I would not have had any time to do it, bcaouse the time was up... So, I was a bit dissapoined at the time consumption.» (To some extent)
- but the exam is a very small part of what we have been studying and i dont think it will for see assess wether we have reached our goals but it will in some extent.» (To some extent)
- the exam paper is ecxillent, cleary assessing if student reached the goal or not...but bit less time given..i am bit fast in writting but then also i was not able to attend one question in provided time..so as i think, either one question is to be canclled or if there would be choice to attend any n-1 question out of n or time should be increased bit more.» (Yes, definitely)
- Didn´,t feel ready to take the exam because i hadn´,t had time to learn enough. » (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- well, no body allowed us to purely involve in laboration, it seems like a phd student is giving demostration and we`re looking at him, and in the last he handover some precalculated papers and then lab. is over...not appreciated at all.Laboration doest meant just to look whhat is going one and to look at one fellow what he is going and then the demostrator explaine the phenomenon on blackboard...is can be done by showing a lab. movie in lecturer room and the letter explaiining theory..this is was we have done in laboration...in both lab..» (Small extent)
- student did not really participate in the labs. (We were not allowed to set up everything)» (Some extent)
- Good in principal but not enough discussion of prepared home assignments and results obtained during the lab.» (Some extent)
- In the first laboration, Lightning Impulse Testing, I think it was too many different things to cover and the lab pm was very difficult to understand. I had to read it many times before I understood what the laboration was going to be about. It was also a little bit stressful during the laboration.» (Large extent)
- they are exactly what we studied in class and they helped me to well understand the lecture. Together with the tutorial they were great help to me.» (Great extent)

- Haven"t used ebooks.» (?)
- I have`t even open a single page of the book, just concentrated in lecture and in the tutorial and then at home wrote the things in my worlds..i guess that helps me very much , i didt need any other supplimentry taxts.And few handouts on web pages will fill the remainminig blanks.» (Small extent)
- frankly speaking, reading any course material other than lecture notes will creates confusion and i rarely read on ebook or other resouce as far as high voltage engineering is concerned.» (Small extent)
- I haven´,t.» (Small extent)

- But that"s because I don"t follow the masters program, so I had a tough second course» (High)

- the teacher should improve his performance. The tutor is well perform. I like her.» (Adequate)
- Relevant content» (Good)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Jörgen and Elisabeth!»
- The lecture and tutorial teachers should be in the course even next year. »
- Tutor is really excellent and should be kept.Laboratories should be improved.»
- The way the lectures, tutorials and laborations were performed.»
- either reduce course contents or increase time for quarter...and for exam: »
- The tutorials»
- most of them like electric field basics, high voltage generation and testing, insulation coordination and testing,traveling waves most of them»
- insulation cordination , surge arresters and lightning impulse»
- the way lectures are given is very good.»
- The teachers, both Jörgen and Elisabeth were great at what they were doing, among the best I"ve had. Elisabeth was very pedagogic, explained very clearly and Jörgen was great at keeping ones attention.»
- The tutor»
- all»
- Jörgen and Elisabeth»
- Practical topics like surge arrestors, insulation coordination and travelling wave»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The lecture notes should be reviewed and corrected, but also clearified in some cases. Preferably a course compendium should be composed and sold.»
- There should not be any lab report since it is really time consuming and add nothing to the understanding.Instead the assistance should assess the student preparation by asking some questions just before the starting of the lab session and based on that he can decide wheather they student is ready to carry out the eperiment or not. »
- student should be allowed in setting up experiment »
- More study visits etc. And earlier in the period. It was hard to calculate on things you really didnät know how they looked.»
- the coursebook should be in time»
- mechanical and thermal stresses, power system components better if they were included in another course »
- Experimental methods»
- I felt the tutorials differed a bit from the exam, which isn"t good. »
- Some less workload, maybe with the labs, even if they were great this time.»
- The LABs»
- examination question should be spread out covering all the lessons taught in the class not focussed to particular lesson.»
- The revision in the end, but it would have been better to have a bit sooner.»
- theoretical topics like breakdown in gases etc»

19. Additional comments

- Fun and interesting course!»
- Looking forward to seeing some compendiums for the instructors here in Chalmers..»
- All the guys were doing well. thank you very much. if an easy course literature is found that will be very helpful and the content of the course should be compressed.»
- Competent lecturer/tutor/lab assistants»
- Jorgan and Elizabeth are very good for the course»
- The abstact part should be minimised and replaced with more of statistical approach to insulation coordination, more on the other switchgear equipment, like CVT and Circuit breaker selection should be treated like LA. Mechanical aspect should also be expanded with more practical applications»
- The LAB is not helpful at all. We did not have chance to do anything, just see and write down the resullt, so boring :( Actualy, I did not understand well what I was doing in the LAB!»
- The course should be more practical oriented like study visits to high voltage manufacturing groups and their utilization as in grid station etc»

- I think an air insulated substation is more fun for us to visit since the components are visible. But sure, this was fun too.» (Small extent)
- Maybe I was too tired but it didn"t help me much at all, it was just a chance to see some equipment in reality.» (Small extent)
- It was very nice but it also could have come a bit sooner.» (Small extent)
- it is rather good to understand lectures, e.g system componens.» (Some extent)
- it is really nice to see real physical components that we discussed in class.» (Some extent)
- Maybe some slides with an opened GIS and its cross section respectively could be of help in understanding the features of a GIS better.» (Some extent)
- During the study visit we are only farmiliar with Lightning arrester and Cables. Other components such as disconnectors, CT, VT,and circuit breakers, bus bars and grounding need to have been deepy studied » (Large extent)
- I didn"t get to learn much, but it was very interesting and should do ones a lot more often.» (Large extent)
- otherwise, high voltage classes and lecture had been interesting one!» (Large extent)
