- Since I"m a mechanical engineer, this new programming language was really hard. Maybe we could"ve used matlab instead?» (Small extent)
- It was time consuming and frustrating when I could have spent my time learning the course material instead.» (Small extent)
- nothing, unclear start, not obvious how to use the program» (Small extent)
- The project was too hard for us from MPSES. We have not the right pre-knowledge. But anyway, the project assistant was good. » (Small extent)

- It was time consuming and it hasn"t really given me anything at all. Sure it is nice to know how to write in IEEE format, but collecting other authors works and summerize them in a report was not something I found learning at all. If I spent the time i did on the term paper on the compendium I would actually have learnt stuff. I don"t understand why we couldn"t write the termpaper in groups. It could be done more effectively.» (Small extent)
- I learned a lot about a very small topic without any other relation to the course. » (Small extent)
- It would have been much better if the term paper was given at the start of the class since most of the titles are self study and it would give us more time to do it properly. » (Large extent)

- hard for people not from electrical engineering (need to study more because of the lack of electrical background)» (High)
- The time spent only on the gams and the termpaper has been equal to the time i spent on the other course i took at the same time. Which means i have not yet taken time to actually study the material presented on the lectures.» (Too high)
- ı,t was very little time for too much work. Assignments should"ve been distributed evenly and last week should"ve been left alone for studying.» (Too high)

Genomsnitt: 3.07

- The course it self seems to be interesting, but now in the end of the course when i have not really had any time to learn much at all, my impression of the course is very low.» (Fair)

18. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- none»
- Lecture hand-outs»
- Term paper, seminar»
- GAME and project work»
- Market Game, Tutorials and Term-paper»
- everything»
- The term paper and the market game should be preserved for the next year.»
- the course goals»
- market game, presentation of term-paper»
- Market Game»

19. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- We have not worket with GAMS before and therefore the project was difficult, change to MATLAB instead.»
- Hand out the termpaper subjects the first day so that one can start writing directly and be done with it. Or better remove the term paper from the course since it just feels time consuming.»
- none»
- the teatchers! the content of the course if you have not read electro»
- More basic information about electro engineering to have a better foundation to start from.»
- I think it will be helpful to reduce the total workload by for example eliminating the GAMS report.»
- It must be pointed out that not all have taken electrical engineering courses in power transmission and such. Some of us are mechanical/ chemical engineering student with little knowledge of power transmission!»
- teaching contents»
- GAMS Project»
- nothing»
- I would not say definitely, but one thing that I would suggest is to give an already made programme in GAMS and ask students to write a report on what they understand from the results. This would save time and also the main purpose would be better served. »
- As i mentioned above the term paper timing should be changed.»
- The way of teaching!!»
- The course doesn"t suit us from MPSES. We need more pre-knowledge (at least to manage the GAMS-project).»

20. Additional comments

- none»
- the goal of this course is not well clear. Many different theoretical concepts have been introduced with no precise reason. I think it is better to set some clear goal and just teach them not wandering around many topics.»
- Too much theory in the course. Difficult to absorb the theory because it was too heavy.»
- The final exam was vey much difficult, and although I had studied very hard, but I did my exam very bad, because the questions was very difficult and new. It was not similar to the old exams, and I wish this does not happen again at the re-exam times.»
- very good course!»
- I do not want to say that teacher had not enough knowledge about the subject but he really should change the way he teach. First of all he show too many notes and slide during lecture which finally had not good outcome. Second he did not give a chance to ask or discussion during lecture although he change at last lectures to some extent. Third in the first lecture or at the beginning of each lecture he should give a brief introduction what we are going to learn, what is the usage of this subject,... »
