The only way I was able to do it was waiting until I got Chain Lightning (to aoe all the adds at once) which was the real problem for me (Sorcerer). During the beta, I didnt figure that out until I had completed the next planets missions and it was still more difficult than the elites 6+ levels above it.

It also helps to lure it into the tunnel a ways, fighting it in the large room caused me to wipe numerous times. When I lured it into the tunnel it was a bit easier.

I done it on 18lvl, after several times of restarting...

1. You must have "Channel the Force" ready to use.
2. Max out all possible equipment for you and companion.
3. Use stim for willpower and ready maximum affordable medpack.
4. Khem Val going for DPS mode, you for "tank" mode, use skills like Mark of Power and Guard on him. Charge you staff with "dark charge".

Battle.
1. Rush into battle. Boss go under ground and strike you 250 dmg. Then attack, shock, electrocute, and melee. Hi lose 25-30% hp and go underground again, summoning minions. Now activate Channel the Force. You MUST aggro them all and kill as soon as possible. It's not hard. Overload them, then shock (one down), Force Lightning (second), melee all that left and go for Boss, help you companion. Electrocute boss (Channel the Force recharge your Electrocute).
2. Now he lose another 30, and another time go underground. Repeat step 1 and kill second wave of minions. You companion almost dead now and soon perish. Focus on boss, after he kills Khem Val and goes for you, use medpac (if needed) and finish him off. You will be able to make his last 25-30% hp disappear.

Thank you very much! This helped me beat him, fairly easy. I'm a level 19 Sorcerer.

I had issues with that same quest, hooked up with someone with the same problem and ran thru it twice to get our completion for it.

I got to level 20 as my Sith Sorcerer (lightning spec) so that I could use chain lighting.

The method was something like. DPS the broodmaster, when it went underground I shielded myself, waiting till the broodlings got close to me, used chain lighting, and then did that funky ground pound thing to finish them off, then went back to DPSing the broodmaster.

I had a lot of difficulty before I got chain lightning, but once I had that it was a cakewalk.

Did it yesterday after few tries, with a lvl 21 Assassin. After maxing out my equipment (and my companion one) I was able to do it, not after seeing Khem Val dead and my health bar nearly finished :S

A very hard encounter, I must admit it.

I'm also struggling with this quest, going to take on board some of the suggestions here and hope they work.
