- The contents of the lectures are sometimes too basic for people attending a Master Course. I don´,t know why, but I expected more. Maybe guest lectures would be good. » (No, the goals are set too low)
- But the course by it self did not deliver as the goals where set.» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

- It was a very easy exam» (No, not at all)
- Taking 30/56 points on the exam from last year"s exam was definitely the most lazy thing I have ever seen! The exam was more a memory- than a knowledge test!» (No, not at all)
- It was a real "typtalstenta". Personally I think that is really sad and boring because then I automatically dont put down more efford to go into depth with some things... I studied just for one day for the exame and probably will get a 5 in grade - Normally that would not be possible if it is a course that demands more of you. » (To some extent)
- but I hope so!» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- David made great job during the tutorial sessions. About professor Ola"s lectures: Why not adapt the lecture slides for the audience? It is really LAZY and DISRESPECTFUL to use about 50% of the slides written in swedish. Going to most lectures (especially the one about waterpower)was just waste of time. Absolutly terrible prepared lectures (what should I say here...?) with one half of the slides written in swedish didn"t help that much....» (Small extent)
- Slow and very broad lectures.» (Small extent)
- Some of the techers were unprepered. To few techers at the data lab» (Some extent)

- to few assignment teachers» (Rather poor)
- ..during booked hours. It was possible to get help outside of booked hours.» (Rather poor)
- David was really good! You could always go to him with questions and he explained well. Though the situation was not the same with Poopak. Initially during the assignments she did not follow the help list but instead just walked to a few that got alot of help. Maybe she did have a bad self-esteem to dare to talk with more people.» (Rather good)
- David and Poopak were nice supervisors and helped a lot, I do not know for Emma since I did not ask her. As far as I remember David replied quite fast to the mails and to the questions during the project sessions.» (Very good)

- As said before the level of the course was a bit low... expected to learn more, high workload came with Hybrid Vehicles project which was really boring (especially the task 1).» (Low)
- Too little to start with, too much in the end. This was due to the last assignment being much larger than the other ones.» (Adequate)
- last assignment was hard!if the task was described earlier, it would be much easier!» (Too high)

Genomsnitt: 3.51

- Really intersting subject but the organisation of the course is bad. » (Poor)
- Is this course just a way for the department to earn money??» (Poor)
- Good thought but to broad lectures that the exam in the end did not test anyway. One suggestion could be to focus more on less things such as be better in calculating and optimising wind-, solar-, hydroenergy and electric cars. » (Fair)
- I thought it would be more future systems studied. It felt like my lack of electronic background made some parts hard to understand. But it was overall a great course with good lectures and assignments. » (Good)
- But please add more electrical engineering in it. Give a separate course to students of electric power on this subject so that we will be able to gain more.» (Good)
- Bet course i have taken so far.» (Excellent)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- - Assignments Wind & Wave - Laborations Solar & Wind - Study Trip - Range of Topics»
- none»
- The assignments help the understanding of the theory learned during the lectures, so I think they are really important! The study visit was also interesting.»
- better explanation in the study visit»
- solar laboration and study visit to hönö»
- all the lab and lecture »
- Assignments (with some revision) , study visits»
- Study trip and the labs.»
- nothing»
- you learn from the assignment»
- I learned a lot from the assignment, so they are a definite keeper. »
- Labs study visit and assignments (except the HEV one)»
- The assignment are a very good way to deal with the material !»
- -the range of interesting topics with different lecturers -the study visit -the scientific work with presentation»
- no comments»
- visit trip, assignments,labs»
- study trip and the assignments»
- Study visit»
- The wind part. David Steen»
- keep the assignments»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- - Hybrid Vehicles Assignment - Contents of some lectures - More teachers? Guest lectures?»
- the goal of the assignments should be clearer»
- none»
- The last assignment about Hybrid vehicles is quite long comparing the previous ones and the time given to finish is too short. »
- more about solar. Better prepard lecture teachers»
- add some point also for the lab and scientific work. »
- more assistant teachers, higher tempo with assignments early in the period. Perhaps stricter deadlines with the first assignments.»
- nothing»
- Bonus points or less assignment»
- The study visit to Hönö was not that giving»
- change the electrical vehicle assignment to make it easier... Make the lectures clearer (especially about electricity in wind turbine) go deeper on hydro»
- Use a real exam, not just a memory test. PREPARE THE LECTURES!!!»
- It would be better to have a course book to put everyone to the same level in electricity !»
- -more assistants for the work on the assignments questions about nuclear energy in the examination -longer presentation of the scientific work, 5 minutes are really short »
- exam»
- lecture slides can be a little deeper.»
- The hybrid assignment is sooo big. Why? And the scientific work felt a bit unnecessary. Kind of like "we put this in just to increase the work load". More information about it would have been preferrable. Now you only talked about the very first lecture. Please, make your own slides.»
- Another exam that actually test you on the whole knowledge that the course tries to teach you. Also»

17. Additional comments

- none»
- Interesting course but I thought there would be more calculations. I think it is quite theoretical course and we are not analysing in depth the concepts.»
- lectures needs better structure. Assignment 6 was way to big, has taken several days!»
- As a student from Mech engineering, I think my knowledge of electrical engineering was a bit too low.»
- It would be better if everything was more precise and defined !»
- Thank you for a nice course.»
- I personally think this course should not contain Nuclear Power. If the name of this course is SUSTAINABLE ENERGY PRODUCTION AND TRANSPORTATION then it should only consist of the technique we really are shore could be seen as sustainable (=development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs). The only bad thing the course mentioned about nuclear was that "the waste is bad". The course did not put weight into the dirty process of mining uranium (information about this process is hard in general to get and this is a sign that it is not a clean process). Now we buy uranium from Russia and other East European countries. Also we have not managed to come up with a solution for the long term storage of 200 000 years!!!!!- the copper barrels that Sweden thought was the solution might erode due to the conditions in the ground. So far the nuclear waste in the world have just been lying in the short term storages for 40 years. Is this sustainable? Also not to forget the importance of nuclear weapons - Carl Bildt have said that todays biggest problem are not the green house effect - it is nuclear weapons.... So fission nuclear energy DO NOT ONLY HAVE "BAD WASTE"!!! If this course will keep on having nuclear energy on the agenda, then make shore that more perspectives comes into the picture!!!!!!»
