Title: An Accurate 3D Thermal Simulation Method Based on Neural Network-Aided Power Loss Model

Summary of the paper
In this paper, an accurate electro-thermal co-simulation method based on the data-driven neural network power loss model is proposed to overcome the problem of low simulation accuracy caused by the inaccuracy input power loss. Firstly, methods for building neural network power loss models and automating data extraction are introduced. Then, an indirect coupling strategy is applied for the bidirectional coupling between the power loss model and the thermal model. Finally, the comparison between simulation and experimental results demonstrates the validity of the proposed method, which gives a mismatch below 5%.
