About the Course

This course familiarizes you with standards and policies of the electric utility industry, and provides you with basic vocabulary used in the business. It introduces the electric power system, from generation of the electricity all the way to the wall plug. You will learn about the segments of the system, and common components like power cables and transformers. This course is for individuals considering a career in the energy field (who have a high school diploma, at minimum, and basic knowledge of mathematics), and existing energy sector employees with less than three years of experience who have not completed similar training and would benefit from a course of foundational industry concepts. The course is a combination of online lectures, videos, readings and discussions. This is the first course in the Energy Production, Distribution & Safety specialization that explores various facets of the power sector, and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established, energy-related professional goal. To learn more about the specialization, check out a video overview at

The course was very easily explained including all the minor details it's like a journey of powers system where you get to know about all the key elements required to have the knowledge in this field.

What an Extraordinary Course, I really appreciate meeting with such a skilled professor and a tutor too.\n\nThough his main focus was on the USA and quiz were mainly focusing on the USA not globally.

It needs to improve some concepts, for example "All renewable energies are sutainable", that is false if you are looking for biofuels, actually in Brasil the increment of the needs of corn are deforesting the AMAZONAS!!!!

Nice course for anyone who is not familiar with the topic. The information in video is outdated. Also some optional videos are unavailable and there is no interesting assignments for peer review.

It could have been more generalized as it is specific to USA but students belong to other countries. You could have asked more conceptual rather than value based questions in quizzes.

Kind of basic on the most fundamental theory behind energy systems: I understood beforehand the course was not intended for a technical specialization, tho.

The lectures need more correction in presentation and Instructor needs more friendly attitude in his face while teaching.

Content: 5 stars; Presentation: 2 stars => This course should be brought up to speed with "modern" ways of teaching
