Due to the lack of a simple tool to analyze the thermal behavior of a static converter, this paper proposes an algorithm to predict the losses (conduction and switching) and the temperature behavior in a semiconductor device. Using this algorithm the heat-sink design can be optimized in order to project a converter with high power density. The methodology which easily extracts the loss and thermal models, without huge computational efforts, is demonstrated. The proposed approach can be used as an educational tool, since it can be easily implemented in a circuit simulation software, assisting students of Power Electronics.
