IGBT Thermal Characteristics

This example shows generation of the Ic versus Vce curve for an IGBT at two different temperatures. To generate the plot, double-click the block labeled 'Generate Characteristics'. On the plot, the solid lines are from running the model, and the dotted lines are digitized datasheet data. The N-Channel IGBT component has been parameterized using Vce values for when Ic is 400A and Vge is 10V. These two points are intercepted by both model and datasheet plots for Vge=10V. The remaining block parameters must be tuned by simulation so that the datasheet and model plots match as best as is possible. See the N-Channel IGBT block reference page for further information.
