I am really happy taking this course. Challenging but the course really well structured so it helps a lot! My learning curve taking this course is huge. Thank you Prof. Erickson and team!
The analysis and materials of this course are very useful. A great section. If the MATLAB script for calculating the converter Poles and Zeros can be provided will be even better.

good practical course which give a unique insight in Switch mode control system.
the professor POV shows that a simple graphical construction of the transfer function can be sufficient and reduce the complexity otherwise needed to gain the same insight using exact computation.
furthermore a step by step explanation of how to contract a practical PID compensator is given .
I wish that the course would also contain a compensator explanation referring to the isolated (Flyback forward) converter using more practical topology (the control loop is isolated also).

The course was exceptional. I found this course assignments more interesting than the assignments corresponding to course 1 and 2. Overall a good way to understand the design aspects of Power Converters. Thanks to Dr.Erickson and his team.
I would also like to add that I have read Dr. Erickson's book- Fundamentals of Power Converters during my undergraduate studies, it was the most phenomenal book I have ever read to date.

Along with the asymptotic bode plot it could have been nice if bode plot thru simulation could have been introduced with the help of Matlab/python (preferably python, as its open source tool)

Unfortunately this course did not include the discussion feature as the previous two courses. This means if you get stuck there is no way of asking for help. Fortunately I managed.

I think week 4 was very time consuming, in contrast with week 3, that was very light. Maybe these contents can be better balanced in the fuute.

I spent enormous amount of time figuring out some assignment questions. Hope the idea of these practices makes sense in the industry.

Great material however discussion forums is dead (despite hundreds of views), mentors are unresponsive to questions
Need more exercises, and solution to homeworks (eventually).

The explanation was clear and valuable I enjoyed very much
創建者 Philipp M•
the learning material is very much and it is tough to get through the homeworks.
Expecially weeks 1 and 2 are mixed which makes it difficult to solve the first homework. As soon as you watch the first lectures of week 2, you wonder why that wasn't tought in the lectures of week 1.
Nevertheless, I still like the course and keep getting progress although I nearly have no preknowledge about the topic. I use the course to get some basic knowledge about this topic

PWM Switch modelling and use of that to simplify converter modelling not covered in detail.
More theoretical. Intuition on the models that we derive is not there.

i dont feel that i can use what i ve learned in this course to design a modern SMPS, it feels outdated but nonetheless i learned some basics of control theroy

Assignments should be more formula based rather than giving exact numerical values with 0.1% accuracy. The 0.1% accuracy is very disturbing .

Contents are excellent.
The only disappointing is that It costs to submit assignments.

Great technological course on low power DC/DC converters.
