16.0 Computer Modelling Parameters

16.1 Calculating VT using ABCD Coefficients

The on-state characteristic IT vs VT, on page 7 is represented in two ways;

(i) the well established VT0 and rT tangent used for rating purposes and

(ii) a set of constants A, B, C, D, forming the coefficients of the representative equation for VT in

terms of IT given below:

VT = A + B ⋅ ln(IT )+ C ⋅ IT + D ⋅ IT

The constants, derived by curve fitting software, are given in this report for hot and cold characteristics

where possible. The resulting values for VT agree with the true device characteristic over a current range,

which is limited to that plotted.
