TOP REVIEWS FROM ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS
Interesting course to understand the basics of electricity and the grid. I think that the facts related to renewable energy should be more up to date since this is a sector that evolves very rapidly.
The contents are good however the exercises some times ask for questions not directly explained throughout the videos. This made me feel like I was not paying attention but that was not the case.
really goof course. Very helpful for me as I want to pursue masters in power electronics. This course lay down the basic structure and general overview. Definately suggest for the beginners.
The entire course was amazing and the key takeaways were really good and understandable. I suggest you to take this course, since it has best learning resources and best training for beginners.
