using IGBT semiconductorsPatrikResutikDepartment of Mechatronics and Electronics, University of Zilina, Zilina, SlovakiaSlavomirKascakDepartment of Mechatronics and Electronics, University of Zilina, Zilina, SlovakiaPower loss estimation is a very crucial step in the design of power inverters and other power converters. In this paper, the estimation of power losses using MATLAB Simulink is presented. This approach allows fast estimation of losses and can lower the design time of the cooling system. With the use of a simulation approach, different parameters can be simulated to estimate losses and design the best cooling solution accurately. Characteristics of the used semiconductor in this case IGBT is used and imported to the electro-thermal simulation. This simulation consists of two main parts. The first component calculates semiconductor losses depends on the provided characteristics of the used device and his temperature. The second model calculates temperature based on the thermal model and losses produced by the first part of the simulation. Results in the form of the losses are implemented to the heat distribution simulation using Fusion 360 to simulate the temperature distribution of the used heatsink.62320206232020127132https://www.wseas.org/multimedia/journals/power/2020/a325116-662.pdf10.37394/232016.2020.15.16https://www.wseas.org/multimedia/journals/power/2020/a325116-662.pdf10.1109/ecce.2011.6063820O.
