This paper describes the development and implementation of an analytical thermal model for fast and accurate thermal simulations of power device modules. A Fourier-based solution is used to solve the heat equation in two dimensions. The solution can describe the variation of temperature through the structure versus time. The thermal model is extremely fast(More)
Simulation of power converters has traditionally been carried out using simplified models to shorten simulation time. This will compromise the accuracy of the results. A proposed fast simulation method for simulating converter losses and device temperatures over long mission profiles (load cycles) is described in this paper. It utilises accurate(More)
