Abstract

In this paper, a method to predict junction temperature of the solid-state switch under transient condition is presented. The method is based on the thermal model of the switch and instantaneous measurement of the energy loss in the device. The method for deriving thermal model parameters from the manufacturers data sheet is derived and verified. A simulation work has been carried out on a single IGBT under different conditions using MATLAB/SIMULINK. The results show that the proposed method is effective to predict the junction temperature of the solid-state device during transient conditions and is applicable to other devices such as diodes and thyristors.
