Simulation Tools for Power Module and Power Semiconductor Device Selection


The Semikron SEMISEL Simulation Software calculates power dissipation and temperature curves, evaluates ready assembled stacks based on user specifications, provides selection of suitable devices for given nominal operating conditions and heat sink temperature, and proposes suitable IGBT drivers for Semikron IGBT's or given gate charge.

The Infineon Power Simulation program will support you to select the right Infineon bipolar modules or disk devices for your rectifier (B2, B6, M3.2 and M6) or AC switch (W1C and W3C) applications as well as suited IGBT modules for your inverter (single & three phase in 2-Level as well as 3-Level) or DC converter (buck and boost) applications.

MELCOSIM is a software tool used for proper selection of Mitsubishi Electric power modules based on fast power loss and junction temperature calculation. MELCOSIM is software designed for the power loss calculation occurring in power modules under specific user application conditions and for junction temperature rises as a consequence of power loss.

The Fuji Electric IGBT/FWD power loss simulation software version 5 is an improved version for calculating IGBT losses and temperatures for variable load pattern. The accuracy of the loss calculation is improved and useful functions for application design with Fuji IGBT modules are added.
