Separate switching losses into Eon and Eoff

0 votes
Hello Users

I'm wondering whether PLECS has any "built-in" (or direct) way to separate the switching losses of a device into turn-on and turn-off.

PLECS does not have such a library component, but this logic can be developed from primitive blocks- see the attached example built in PLECS Standalone. To open the model in PLECS Blockset, add an empty PLECS Circuit block in a Simulink model and from the File menu, choose "Import from Standalone". You are able to look under the mask of the component to see the design.

Best regards,

Thanks a lot Kris for the support. Really straightforward tip to do the task. Until now I was creating two different thermal models for the same component to accomplish the split, but your suggestion is much simpler and neat.
