  • Patent number: 11002782
    Abstract: A method for determining failure of a power element for use in an electronic device is provided. The electronic device includes a power element and a detection circuit. The method includes the steps of: obtaining a temperature-calculation model of the power element, and obtaining a parameterized temperature-calculation model of a power-element parameter and a parameterized temperature of the power element; detecting load information and the power-element parameter by the detection circuit; calculating a modeled temperature of the power element according to the load information and the temperature-calculation model, and calculating the parameterized temperature of the power element according to the power-element parameter and the parameterized temperature-calculation model; determining whether an error between the modeled temperature and the parameterized temperature exceeds a permitted range; and determining that the power element has failed in response to the error exceeding the permitted range.

  • Publication number: 20210067052
    Abstract: An indirect matrix converter includes a rectifier module, an inverter module, and a control unit. The rectifier module includes three parallel-connected T-type bridge arms, and each T-type bridge arm includes a bidirectional switch and a power bridge arm. The power bridge arm includes a first switch and a second switch connected to the first switch in series. One end of the bidirectional switch is coupled to a first AC power source, and the other end thereof is coupled to a common contact between the first switch and the second switch. The control unit outputs a plurality of control signals to control the rectifier module and the inverter module, so that the first AC power source is converted into a second AC power source, or the second AC power source is converted into the first AC power source.

  • Publication number: 20190316855
    Abstract: A thermal abnormality detection system includes: a first heat dissipation system having a first temperature sensor for measuring an actual temperature of the first heat dissipation system; a second heat dissipation system having a second temperature sensor for measuring an actual temperature of the second heat dissipation system. Assuming that a difference between the actual temperature of the first heat dissipation system and an upper limit temperature of the first heat dissipation system is d1, and a difference between the actual temperature of the second heat dissipation system and an upper limit temperature of the second heat dissipation system is d2, when a value of d1?d2 is greater than an error threshold value Error1_level, the first heat dissipation system is determined to be abnormal, and when the value of d1?d2 is less than an error threshold value Error2_level, the second heat dissipation system is determined to be abnormal.
