Transient and Steady-State 3-D Electro-Thermal Design and Analysis of the Rotating Power Electronic IGBT Converter
2015 (English)In: IEEE InternationalElectric Machines and Drives Conference (IEMDC), 10-13 May 2015., Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper deals with a 3-dimensional developmentof a thermal model of a power electronic converter mountedon the generator shaft and rotating with it. The dimensions ofthe heat sink are determined and the temperature gradients ofthe converter, its heat sink, and shaft during natural and forcedconvection are analyzed for variable rotor speeds. It is shown thatthe chosen sizes of the IGBT and heat sink offers compact designof the rotating converter, which is sufficient for its mounting inthe limited space, offered by the generator shaft. Furthermore,transient temperature profile is also presented.
