- The lectures were not very good. Difficult to understand the teacher and not very interesting.» (Some extent)
- Good tutorials but the lectures were too focused on just writing down formulas. More could be done to make the Real world <-> Formulas connection» (Some extent)
- The lectures could have been a litle bit more interactive, between the teacher and the students. Also Tuan could have talked a litle bit more of general idéas and theoretical points. The tutorials were good, but there could also be scheduled time for self studying an asking the tutor, to make us start thinking of problems rather than just writing the same thing as the tutor.» (Some extent)
- the tutorials was good but the lectures was not so good. It was very hard to understand what Tuan was saying» (Some extent)

- There should be more questions of the shorter kind. And some pure theoretical questions. To make it an natural part of the learning process. » (Some extent)
- They must put up the solution to all problems on the coure web page. It is not possible to study in a group with all the scheduled lectures and tutorials. When you sitting at home during the night and weekend without a complete solution and just have the answer, it just get confusing.» (Large extent)

- Almost pointless.» (Small extent)
- The practical laboratory was really of no use and was nearly mere time-wasting. We just connected very simple circuits and measured voltage drops and currents and stuff. Not helpful at all!!!» (Small extent)

- I think it should be better if it had to be handed in earlier during the study period.» (Some extent)
- Great.» (Large extent)
- Computer-based design project was really good. I believe the most useful part of the course was this. We learned many things through that and worked many important principles in practical design.» (Large extent)

- Please talk this to Tuan. Many students, many times asked Tuan to use the Handouts section but he did not. We asked Tuan to scan and put the lectures on the handouts sections many times but he did not.» (Very badly)
- Tuan should definately put more effort in making his lecture slides open on the course page.» (Rather well)
- The hand outs should be avaliable through the homepage» (Rather well)
- It was great that the answers to assignments were uploaded.» (Very well)

- Tuan"s english accent is horrible. I do not want to say that but Tuan is not appropriate from teaching. I know he"s very knowledgeable but at least he has to practice how to speak english a lot. The problem is that neither the Swedish students nor international students but the Chinese do not understand his english.» (Rather poor)

- The course work load was VERY VERY VERY high. We had a design project and a lab. Also, there was really a lot of materials on the course curriculum that needed a lot of time to even read the material once.» (Too high)
- There was to much different subjects. It very difficult to get the understanding of how things work, when you must hurry on to next task all the time..» (Too high)

- We don get enough time to study and prepare for examinations!» (Too high)
- This study period was very tough. I think you should consider that students NEED SOME TIME TO STUDY AND UNDERSTAND THE COURSES. We do not need only to attend classes. We definitely need studying. IT IS THE SAME THIS STUDY PERIOD. Please, please, for god"s sake, understand that we do not have any time to study. We are always at the classes.» (Too high)
- Read three courses» (Too high)
- There were too many labreports to be handed in and too much scheduled, youn don´,t have time to study on your on.» (Too high)

- The course was not good. Because it would be great if really achievable but it"s more like an ambition. Too much material, too much workload, ...!!!» (Poor)
- The lab report was a little unnecessary. It was to much work in this time of the period and this report took a long time to write..» (Good)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Project, lab»
- The design project.»
- number of lectures»
- the way of studying I think.»
- Nil»
- The design project and Jörgen»
- Everything»
- The lecture handouts.»
- Everything!»
- The design project»
- more in AC motor drive»
- load flow project»
- The project and the lab.»
- everything »
- The project can stay.»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More study time between the Drives exam and Power systems analysis.»
- work load must be reduced»
- the total workload should be reduced because I don"t think I have enough time to study and understand what i learn by myself.»
- Nil»
- The lab was not very good as it was this year. »
- Course material should be reduced. Its too bulky»
- Remove the lab»
- Minimizing the work load.»
- The curicullum should be revised and should involve less content»
- Gauss-seidal method Newton-Raphson method decoupled load flow method FDPF Method»
- Handouts should be better.»
- nothing except the time limit between end of class and the examination»
- No lab, hence no labreport! That just stole presios time from real studying. Also the demonstrated exercises should be avaliable on the homepage. Not necessaraly all of the problems. But the problems should be less time consuming, and there should be som theoretical questions already amongst the tutorial problems, to better prepare for the exam. It is also VERY important to correct the answers for the problems for the students to avoid spilling time on recalculating complicated calculations.»
- Better course material! The examination load. Too many queastions at too little time.»
- more self study on the tutorials»

19. Additional comments

- courses contain extra ordinary material»
- Nothing. I like what I have learned.»
- It would be a good if the course be split in to two parts to have a deeper appreciation of its contents»
- At least there should be time for students to understand the material before writting the exam»
- Power System Analysis course should contain lesser theory and more study visits to power station, grid stations and distrbution system which were none during this course»
- it was really fun and nice to attend the power system analysis course»
- no»
- I think that the exame didn"t totally contact with the tutorial exercises. The exame was harder than I had expected.»
