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.

Nice overview of converter controls. One gets a lot more out of this course with some background knowledge related to classical feedback control.
If you want to get something out of this course, plan to take a lot more time (than advertised) to complete the assignments.

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.

Very interesting way of looking at ac circuit analysis from a graphical perspective. Makes visualizing the ac variations in switch mode power supplies less complex.

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).
