Abstract in another language

n view of ever-increasing power densities and harsh operating conditions manufacturers of power electronic systems are demanding concepts to monitor the ageing process of IGBT power modules in the field. This paper presents a diagnostic concept to identify the thermal resistance from chip to substrate and to monitor its increase due to the gradual delamination of the IGBT chip-solder. For this purpose the IGBTs are operated with repetitive half-sinusoidal power losses and a modified gate driver measures the amplitude ∆TJ and the minimum temperature TJ,Min of the resulting junction temperature cycles. The focus of this paper is on the implementation of the diagnostic concept within a voltage source inverter of a hybrid transmission. It describes an inverter control strategy to realize the periodic heating current in a regular operating point and without generating any drive torque. Moreover, the additional increase of the temperature cycle amplitude ∆TJ due to the increased power losses at higher minimum cycle temperatures TJ,Min is investigated. The diagnostic concept is tested with artificially aged power modules and enables a very robust and selective identification of a delaminated chip-solder and a contaminated cooling system with little implementation effort.
