Power-Dissipation Estimate

The following formulas show how to estimate the IC power dissipation under continuous-conduction mode (CCM) operation. The power dissipation of the IC (PT) includes conduction loss (P(con)), dead-time loss (P(d)), switching loss (P(SW)), gate-drive loss (P(gd)) and supply-current loss (P(q)).

Equation 42. TPS54388-Q1 eq28-Pcon_SLVSAH5.gif

where

  • IO is the output current (A)
  • rDS(on)(Temp) is the on-resistance of the high-side MOSFET at a given temperature (Ω)
Equation 43. TPS54388-Q1 eq29_Pd_SLVSAH5.gif

where

  • f(SW) is the switching frequency (Hz)
Equation 44. TPS54388-Q1 eq30_Psw_SLVSAH5.gif

where

  • VI is the input voltage (V)
Equation 45. TPS54388-Q1 eq31_Pgd_SLVSAH5.gif
Equation 46. TPS54388-Q1 eq32_Pq_SLVSAH5.gif

Therefore:

Equation 47. TPS54388-Q1 eq33_Pt_SLVSAH5.gif

For a given TA, use Equation 48 to calculate the junction temperature.

Equation 48. TPS54388-Q1 eq34_Tj_SLVSAH5.gif

where

  • TJ is the junction temperature (°C)
  • TA is the ambient temperature (°C)
  • RθJA is the thermal resistance of the package (°C/W)
  • PT is the total device power dissipation (W)

For a given TJ(max) = 150°C, use Equation 49 to calculate the maximum ambient temperature.

Equation 49. TPS54388-Q1 eq35_Tamax_SLVSAH5.gif

where

  • TJ(max) is maximum junction temperature (°C)
  • TA(max) is maximum ambient temperature (°C)

Additional power losses occur in the regulator circuit because of the inductor ac and dc losses and trace resistance that impact the overall efficiency of the regulator.
