John Siefken (CEO 5S Components) and Wim van Dijk (Sales engineer Danotherm Electric) discussed how one should select the right size resistor. Many engineers oversize the resistor just to be on the safe side. The other way to select a resistor is more complicated but gives more reliability and saves on space and cost.
This story explains how Danotherm selects the right size by thermal simulations. John and Wim wrote the story some years ago. The idea started over dinner in the nice city of Roanoke, Virginia, where John and Wim started their sales trip throughout the USA. Now, the article is also published in the December 2018 issue of IEEE Power Electronics Magazine.
