Structural Impedance of Power Connections; Analysis and Method of Calculation
Increasing the switching speed and power levels in converters brings one to a point where the parasitic impedance of interconnections begins to influence the efficiency and waveforms of the system. With this in mind, modelling of structural impedances of connections is investigated, and an algorithm is presented which calculates the values of stray inductance, resistance and capacitance for most practical connections encountered in power converters.
