Topic:Re: calculation of energy
Body:My Micro-Cap simulator lets you use the ED operator to plot the energy dissipated in a device. However, I don't know if PSpice (I assume this is what OrCad is using for the simulation) has that. You would probably need to use an integral operator with a V*I argument. For example, you should be able to use:
SDT(V(exp)*I(exp))
where SDT integrates with respect to time. I'm pretty sure this operator is available in PSpice.

Topic:calculation of energy
Body:I need to calculate the switching energy loss of the a IGBT. I used Orcad capture, and obtained current and voltage waveforma. How can I calculate energy loss?
