METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CHARACTERIZING JUNCTION TEMPERATURES OF POWER DIODES OF A VOLTAGE SOURCE INVERTER. National and international patent

View it on Knowledge Share

Priority number(s): 102020000012109

Authors

Abstract

The junction temperature of power devices is a vital intimate state of any power electronic converter, and very hard to measure in operation. The invention relates to a method and a system for real-time estimating the devices' temperature in power electronic converters. The invention applies to multiple semiconductor technologies like IGBT, Silicon and Silicon-Carbide (SiC) MOSFETs.

Priority number(s): 102019000015617

Authors

Abstract

For cost and reliability reasons, the angular position encoder is replaced by an observer in electric motor drives for industry applications. The observer stability is susceptible to temperature dependent variation of the motor resistance. The novel Adaptive Projection vector for Position error estimation (APP) technique is resistance- (i.e. temperature-) independent, same as with the encoder on.;
