Abstract

A significant improvement in power semiconductor device utilisation seems possible if the maximum output current of power stages could be limited by thermal feedback from the power converter. To illustrate the potential utilisation benefit obtained in main switching devices, the variation in usable current with operating conditions is examined for several devices applied in a constant frequency PWM VVVF inverter, and operated under conditions to keep their junction temperature constant
