The temperature of a power semiconductor device is important for both its optimal operation and reliability. If the temperature is known during the operation of a converter, it can be used to monitor the health of power modules: a measurement of aging, scheduling of maintenance, or even implementation of active thermal control to reduce losses and increase lifetime can be performed given an accurate knowledge of temperature. Temperature measurements via thermo-sensitive electrical parameters… CONTINUE READING
