A really good course on converter circuits. The way Dr. Erickson synthesized inverters from buck converters was eye opening. Many lectures overlook such basic aspects of power electronics synthesis.
The course has intensified my interest towards the field of Power Electronics. One won't find such systematic and lucid teaching anywhere else. I am grateful to the instructors of the course.

Honestly, the assignments are unnecessarily cumbersome. As an EE student in university, I have learned some contents of power electronics in my own Syllabus, and found this course a good review as well as a source of insights. For a pure enthusiast, I guess this course will be somehow difficult and hard to fully enjoy.

Frustrated throughout the course with the homework system. Please implement a system that provides helpful feedback and more worked out examples.

Great for applied technology on low power DC/DC converters

This course is very difficult, particularly in week 4. The single sample problem with solution provided is utterly useless in helping you prepare for the assessment. It does not parallel the material covered in the lessons and does not prepare you for the assessment. It's bizarre to me that there aren't at least 5 practice problems with solutions that help you prepare for the assessment. Having this is critical to taking an online class by yourself, since the forum cannot be relied upon for timely help, if at all.

some of the equations which needs to be answered in Homework is very complex, almost impossible to find the mistakes, even if one is right on the track.

The course is awfull. Yes. It gives a lot of directions for further self-work and forces the learner to be effecient in finding the right materials. But the course is also expected to be something pleasant and interesting to follow. But here first you watch really dull videos for a couple of hours and then you are faced agains really hard homeworks without no support whatsoever. Does not build up motivation to continue at all.

Videos are useless as far as completing the assignments is concerned. Either the videos are ridiculously lacking, or the assignements are way off course.
