Problem based learning (PBL) is known as an innovative method that improves students in their learning aptitudes. However, PBL is still challenge to power system analysis course since it concerns with advance mathematics and complex methodology. However, two requirements have put a demand in developing the learning method: the first one is to improve students in five skills according to Thai Qualifications Framework (TQF) and the second one is to prepare students for ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) beyond 2015. Thus, PBL has been implemented for the first time in Department of Electrical Engineering, Dhurakij Pundit University and applied to the last year students. The objectives are to develop both students and lecturer. Students should improve their learning aptitudes, ability to integrate their knowledge, and personalities: communication, problem-solving skill, responsibility, and teamwork. The lecturer should develop herself to be a facilitator rather than transmitting knowledge and providing only course materials. The implementation was planned carefully. The objectives of PBL and the corresponding evaluation indexes were set clearly. Then, PBL was carried out corresponding to the subprocedure planned. Finally, evaluation, student feedback and results were analysed and concluded. This paper presents the implementing process, learning outcomes, problems and experiences of implementation.
