Register for “How to Create Cooler Power Systems with Simulation Tools”
As modern electronic systems demand increasingly more power, and power component density increases, eliminating heat is one of the biggest challenges faced by power developers.


Thermal design can be complex and time consuming, with engineers having to review data sheets and application notes to ensure they optimize the cooling of systems. Sometimes estimates are made and then validated by testing real systems to decrease the design time, but the demand for density means that it is more important to calculate the precise condition of the elements of the power system in the customer’s particular application. Fortunately, new simulation tools are being developed that allow preliminary feasibility studies to be conducted in just a few clicks, saving power designers valuable time.


Two live events. Sign up today!


What you’ll learn:

  • Thermal models and the three main cooling methods
  • Precise thermal calculation based on data sheets, application notes and safe operating areas
  • Online simulation tools that take the pain out of thermal calculations
  • How to use thermal simulators for quick analysis of different cooling options
  • Worked examples of thermal calculations for real-world power systems

Who Should Attend?
Thermal design is an important part of power system development and this webinar will benefit engineers working in all applications. The webinar is designed to help attendees with a wide range of experience, from recent graduates to power design experts.
