In this chapter, a step-by-step guide for simulation and models used in this book is explained. Finite element models using COMSOL and MATLAB/Simulink codes’ writing procedures are outlined in easy to follow points. Those include thermal model of a single switch power module, thermomechanical model of a dual power modules and a single-switch discrete switching devices. Modeling of wind and solar renewable energy systems, using MATLAB/Simulink, with thermal characterisation of the associated power electronic devices are also explained.
