Heat Sink Simulation Error

0 votes
I am trying to calculate the switching and conduction losses of MOSFETs in my circuit. I used a thermal library model to add the power loss data to the switches. The circuit simulates fine without the heat sink. Once I added it to the  circuit I got a bunch of errors.

Are you able to attach an example model?

Thank you,

Attached is the circuit model. You need to add a thermal description to the switches. The thermal description used is C2M0080120D. You can download it and add it to the switches.

Hello, you just need to provide a gate resistance value, e.g. 2.5 ohms.
