TOP REVIEWS FROM ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS
Thanking you sir for providing this course by seeing my financial aid form.I learned more subject from lectures and i could clarify my doubts through these lessons of power system.Thank you so much.
It helps me to know different sector and works of electricity. I think the students who wants to study in electrical engineering should do this course to know the basic of electricity.
I had a great time and got alot to learn. Each and every topic was covered in detail and instructors explanation was beyond everything. Each and every concept was delivered in a proper manner.
The course is specifically related to the USA scenario and hence the students from other countries might find it unnecessary to have those information. Yet well executed and informative.
