Paper Abstract

A 2-D electrothermal model of thyristor structure with emitter shorts is presented. It is formed by three coupled submodels: electrical, heat transfer, and heat dissipation. The heat dissipation submodel takes into account heat generation caused by ohmic losses and recombination, as well as the inner heat transfers caused by thermoelectric effects. The results show how the presence of emitter shorts influences the work conditions inside the considered thyristor.
