Demo Model Video - PLECS: Buck Converter With Thermal Model

This video corresponds to the PLECS demo model of a simple unregulated buck converter including a basic thermal model. It serves as an example for using thermal description files, the heat sink component and thermal chains to represent the various interfaces between a semiconductor junction and the ambient environment. With the loss model and thermal circuit, one can calculate the switching and conduction losses of the IGBT and diode, as well as the converter efficiency.
