    Thermal Design Question about Multiple MOSFETs paralleled for Single Cold Plate

    I am a student in power electronic filed. When I design PCB and calculate the junction temperature of MOSFET, I am very confused about the thermal design question. My PCB design is here: (in the middle of the figure) : three MOSFETs in parallel, so 12 MOSFETs(Rthj-c=0.4 from datasheet) in one...

    MOSFET Power Loss calculation ?

    Dear All About Circuits Team, I hope everyone is doing well, I have a question about the MOSFET's behaviour, How can I figure out how much heat the Mosfet produces per amp and how much current it can consume when acting as a load? Below, the Mosfet application shown in the figure, it's an...

    How to Choose Best 650 V , 60A GaN Transistors for Switching Losses ?

    Hi , I will calculate GaN transistors switching losses in Dc DC converter Systems. The formula is , Psw= Vds*Id*fsw*((Ton+Toff)/2) . Vds and Id are drain-source voltage and drain current of the device at OFF and ON intervals respectively. fsw switching frequency and Ton is switching time...

    what is the difference between these two supplies

    I am wondering how will these two differ, One is Ac to DC converter module, second one is SMPS. Link1(AC to DC module) Link2(SMPS) when link 1 is available in a small size than Link2(SMPS). Under what circumstance we have to use Link1 and link2. I understand that SMPS is 5watt, Link1/Module...

    Is it better to specialize in one area( Hardware or software) or is it better to learn about everything(power electronics, Digital electronics, Analog

    Hi, In my first job I have worked as an Embedded systems engineer (with major focus on software) for 1.5 years. I am currently working as a hardware engineer for 2 years. Considering the long term success, is it better to specializing in one area( Specifically analog electronics or...

    How to convert ADC reading to analog current value in LTC6106

    I couldn't convert the ADC reading to its respective analog current value. I connected a microcontroller in the Vout to read the current, it will give an 8bit HEX value. The load is another microcontroller. The ADC reading in no-load is HEX00. (8-bit @ 3.3V) and LTC6106 for current sensing...

    which type of dc to dc converter to use to convert 5V, 80mA input to 3V 300mA output?

    Hi, I am working on a solar panel whose output maximum specifications are 6V, 100mA ( nearly 0.6watt). Practically these values came to 5v, 80mA when tested in afternoon sun. I want to run a motor whose operating voltage is (3~12V), no load current is 180mA. I would like to know...

    Current Limiting Parallel BMS Systems in Solar Storage Application

    Hopefully this is an easy design question to answer. I'll start with some background information. The case is with lithium iron phosphate or LFP batteries that are "48 volts" used for household photovoltaic battery backup. There are many brands and there are different lithium chemistries, but we...

    Ruhmkorff coil design

    Here is a schematic of the circuit I built. The circuit consist of a primary coil, secondary coil, iron core, 2 lithium ion cells connected together, forming a battery, and a multimeter to measure current. I think the battery sometimes gets hot. Should i put a resistor between the battery and...

    Need your advices on how can I estimate the voltage at the terminals the thyristor switch

    I am working on a static transfer switch which aim is to allow supplying a load with 2 different sources in order to have a redundancy when feeding the load. The head to tail assembly allow the current to flow in 2 directions (for each alternative of the input current) The working condition is...

    IGBT Gate Driver Selection

    Hello, I'm designing a resistive load bank. Currently, I am designing the switch that will be controlled by a control signal via Arduino uno rev 3. The bidirectional switch is composed of two back-to-back igbts connected by their emitters with anti-parallel diodes. (Due to cost, there are two...

    Controlling AC powered devices

    Hi All, As an electronics engineer, I have always worked with low voltage circuits and found it very difficult to control high voltage, AC powered devices. In my last project, I needed a power board that I can just plug my MCU or DSP and control an instrument that needs high power. I wanted an...

    What can burn out a 3 phase motor ? Can turning it on and off be effective?

    Hello everyone ... For a project, I want to make an escalator smart with a number of PIR sensors So that the escalator turns off after one minute of not using it And for example, turn on 20 seconds later If this cycle continues, can it damage the engine? The specifications of this motor are 9 kW...
