Non Ideal MOSFET modelling

0 votes

Hello !

 Myself Sanjay, I wanted to model the MOSFET switching losses, and true, there is a part in the library (MOSFET with limited di/dt) but if I'm not mistaken, the MOSFET turn off depends on the load current and isn't a single delay value ( the load current charges the output cap or output charge to be specific and that time is your voltage rise time. Is there any way to model this ?   

Thanks !

hi the most reliable way is to measure it with a double pulse tester like the one describe here:

and then plug in PLECS the switching losses table
