Nov 29 Test 2: Write Your Own Test
The written test should be enough for 80 minutes.
It should be based on System Thinking and Design Thinking.
Adopt a System: The test should start with a block diagram of a power electronics system, like Buck, Boost, Motor Drive, etc.
All question should be about the adopted system.
Questions may be a mix of design-, analysis-, and knowledge-based. 
You may include the needed formulas.
The test should be typed and organized well.
Questions and answers will be assessed.
Good written test can replace Test 1, if needed.
