- The theoretical questions were completely side-tracked: - About Fluidized bed (1 slide about it) - About IGCC (1 scheme about it) There"s way enough knowledge directly in link with the fundamental understanding of the subject (how a gas cycle/steam cycle works, and every efficiency consideration associated) Asking about two specific technologies that will certainly be obselete in 10 years sounds to me not relevant at all.» (No, not at all)
- The examination was more difficult than the goals suggest and more complex than previous years.» (To some extent)
- The theory part was just 15 points about a small detailed part in the whole course and then not really relevant of what we"ve actually learned during the program. » (To some extent)
- Maybe it was the exam syndrome but the exam problems (calculation part) was way too long for getting the results, that was very frustrating.» (Yes, definitely)

- some pictures in power point presentation were with bad resolution (difficult to see important parts) and not enough explained» (Some Extent)
- Ang. slides utdelade på föreläsningarna: Det är bättre att fylla hela den utskrivna sidan med fyra slides än med tre stycken och linjer för anteckningar bredvid. Man ser inte bilderna och texten blir för liten.» (Large Extent)

- It was fun but to messy information, and hard to get started, I think you need to put all the information in the case compendium.» (Moderate)
- Unclear expectations for the first presentation.» (Moderate)
- A lot of work, interesting to some extent, but regarding the investment and the time load required, should be graduated (% of the final grade for instance)» (Moderate)
- Information om case study gick fram dåligt. Det borde lagts mer energi på information om hur projektet skulle gå till. T.ex. en tydlig beskrivning av vad som igår i projektet hade varit bra (not. den i häftet (Report) duger ej.) » (Good)
- It might be good idea to give some part of total grade for this case study work because it was so large. Now it is not motivate student if grade is only pass/fail..» (Good)
- Overall it was an excellent case study. I think it could be made a bit clearer that we"re more or less free to make any changes to the models we like - while still being realistic of course. From the beginning I thought that some of the parameters given in the framework model descriptions were "set in stone", but then it turned out that more or less none were. » (Excellent)

- Haven"t used it» (Moderate)
- I didn"t really learn anything at these lessons, I had already done all the exercises by myself.» (Moderate)
- I think these calculation tutorial are a bit useless because the e-mail or "come by the office" system for help is good enough as well as the corrections provided on the website.» (Moderate)
- Didn"t attend. » (Good)
- i prefere to solve those problems during lecture, not to have explanation of solved problem. And i think there could be more calculation tutoring lectures, and we could solve more different kind of problems.» (Good)

- Some problems that I"ve written previously but in the whole, this is a good course with good teachers which taught me a lot. » (Good)

27. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Case study and study visit.»
- The case, the modelling and the calculation exercises.»
- The modeling parts in Ebsilon»
- I was very happy with the overall structure of the course.»
- case study assistants amazing, and the number of them quite adequate to respond to our questions.»
- more exercise solving lectures.»
- The exercises and solutions.»
- Case study var väldigt uppskattad! Gav bra intentioner att läsa och lära sig teorin. »

28. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- the information structure»
- In my opinion, the theoric questions in the exams should be review and more discuss during the lectures.»
- Clearer information, and see that there are working computers for all students in the lectures.»
- Studiebesöken var inte särskilt givande.»
- There is some small overlap with the lectures, though this was mainly in the introductions of the guest lectures.»
- maybe the case study visit »
- A study visit to Nordjyllandvaerket would be nice I think. »
- only practical problem solving improovement should be made, everything else is adequate.»
- Review the theoretical part of the exam.»
- Nothing really.»
- Some grading for case study work.»
- Jag tycker att Case study"n bör räknas med i slutbetyget. Som det var nu så fick jag känslan av att olika grupper la ner väldigt olika mycket tid för att i slutändan bara bli godkända. Det fanns den lätta vägen att gå genom att bara ta med de mest självklara optimeringsdelarna och nöja sig med det. På så sätt minimerar man också chansen att "göra bort sig" i rapporten och få backning på det, en chans som däremot ökade om man valde att hitta andra mer avancerade lösningar. Tiden de olika grupperna lade ner var som sagt väldigt varierande vilket kändes lite orättvist. Visst, de som la ner mer tid på case study"n kanske fick mer ut på tentan men man kunde lika gärna ha uteslutit de man lärt sig från rapporten för att minimera chansen att tabba sig. Genom att ge ett betyg, säg 20-30 % av slutbetyget, så tycker jag att arbetslasten blir mer rättvis. I övrigt en väldigt uppskattad kurs! »
