This paper deals with the thermal aspects that arise from using the next generation of high power semiconductors featuring a maximum operating temperature for the 5th generation IGBT of 175°C. The benefits that arise for the application and the points that need to be considered beyond the semiconductors are evaluated using a hardware demonstrator.
