- The lectures did not help very much. Confusing and bad slides with too many equations without explanation. I couldn"t keep track of what we were supposed to learn. Miguel has a great energy but it is a bit fast sometimes, and not very structured.» (Small extent)
- The lectures were very fast. A lot of assumptions were made that what we were learning was perhaps easy, easily understood, or simple. There was too much information that was went through too quickly, and it was impossible to keep up and even know what had just happened when the lectures were finished.» (Small extent)
- Miguel Ortega-Vazquez was a not so good teacher, unsecure and it seems like he was in a rush. Hossein was a good at the tutorials but very arrogant. Peiyuan Chen was among the best teachers ever! » (Some extent)

- Course material was pretty much useless. It was very few problems to solve but they were very complex. Would be much better if the problems where easier and more of them.» (Small extent)
- The compendium give some help in the learning process, but i think the compendium needs more explaining text and more explanations in terms of formulas. More info...» (Small extent)
- The handed out slides are very good to have, and easy to take notes by. The compendium is not very clear and has not solutions to some exercises.» (Some extent)
- The course compendium could have been more pedagogical.» (Some extent)
- The course compendium did not cover the course concepts with enough detail (lecture notes however filled in some of the gaps). Either a more detailed compendium is required, or a course book should be used.» (Some extent)
- The book is to short when describing the teory, a lot of equations and to lite that explains what the equations means» (Some extent)
- I think that the book "Power system analysis and design" or the other recommended book should be the recommended book for the course» (Large extent)

- Poor course material, to fast lectures and lack of time to solve problems and get help yourself.» (Poor)
- It was hard to understand in the beginning, very high tempo.» (Adequate)
- but the transformer leturer and related slides at the home page were not effective.» (Adequate)
- I could still be better with better teachers and more practical stuff. The project was really good. » (Adequate)
- except transformers lectures, at least for foreigner students» (Good)
- Good content, poor teaching, was hard to know what we were learning.» (Good)
- Interesting subject. Decicated lecturer (Miguel), his pedagogy will probably be better through more teaching experience. Tutor (Hossein) also very dedicated and skilful, but can be a bit stubborn and unwilling to answer questions.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- the main goals should be the same but the method of teaching should be different»
- Peiyuan, Hossein and the project.»
- Write everything on the blackboard ....Plz do not think that everybody knows everything...You have to assume that nowbody known anything and you learn them everything.............!!!!!»
- Tutorial is good»
- Change techer»
- Load flow analysis, balanced and unbalanced faults analysis»
- focusing on the problems that will be given at exam,because the tutorials were completely different from the exam problems,for example in the turotial the problmes were more difficult.»
- Project in power system analysis.»
- The professor was perfect and friendly, the course material and handouts are good and can be preserved.»
- The project was good to get a perspective on a large working transmission network. But the instructions on how to set the parameters of the program should have been clearer.»
- I think the teacher has good knowledge but he needs to work on transmitting it better.»
- The project»
- The project.»
- the course materials.»
- The tutorial could be much better. »
- The design project in its present structure. »
- Same contents»
- The compendium used in this course was good. It should be preserved.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- the method of teaching in this course should be changed since the lecturer was very quick in his teaching to us and also he skips many steps in solution assuming that we know those steps which made the course defficult to be understood. Also in some lectures, another lecturers came to us for teaching and was very hard to understand them»
- Miguel could possibly talk a bit slower and don"t rush through the classes... Per was really hard to understand, bad English. Tuan was also hard to understand. Wang Feng is also hard to understand, and he is not as informed about the Power World software as Peiyuan. The Course literature isn"t very good.»
- Everything in Basic ...repet matrix before you go in to power flow...»
- improve structure of lectures»
- Time for problem solving with support from the teachers instead of just trouble shooting a couple of problems on the black board.»
- There should be more general information about the course, schedule, main content of each lecture and clearer and easier understanding handout. And the additional material used in lecture»
- transformers»
- leactures, didn´,t really get the information that I needed.»
- tutorial should me more close to final exam format,and very important to have a trial exam.»
- Some of the lessons could have been a bit better prepared, examples made on the blackboard should have been solved prior to avoid lots of mistakes and crossing outs. Also, the guy teaching about the transformers (Per Norberg or something?) Is probably a descent teacher (heard good things about from older students) but unfortunately his substandard english made the lessons quite hard to follow.»
- Some quizzes or a trial exam is essential for this course. Professor should not change (as it was for the transformer chapter). Students should become more familiar with the kind of exam and how to manage their during this long exam. »
- The instructions on how to set the parameters of Power World Simulater should have been clearer. The instructions should say this parameter goes here and so on. We(students) shouldn"t have to guess where the parameters goes, this took a long time in the beginning of the project.»
- More info in the compendium.»
- Lectures.»
- it will be good if the teaching can be improved.»
- Having a trial exam is a good idea.»
- There should be a trial exam, with some or even 0 points, but as a test how can students handle PSA problems. »
- Slower lectures, new professor for transformers (NONE of the students could understand him, especially those from abroad)»
- Either course book should be required or a more detailed compendium. Some guidelines for the report structure could be useful (e.g. an example report illustrating the structure of reports written at Chalmers). Students from different countries have quite different views on how to write reports.»
- nothing»
- Try to upload all lecture notes and tutorial notes before the lectures. This is very important for students like me who prefer to not attend many lectures, but instead spending more time to read these notes.»

16. Additional comments

- I wrote the exam in august and the result from that exam was presented the day after this exam. That is very negligent towards the students»
- A OK course that has potential »
- The tutorial classes were not useful and could not answer those problem that we had.»
