Motors are the major source of energy consumption in appliances. Since governmental and agency regulations continue to mandate reduced energy consumption, inverter technology is being increasingly accepted and used by a wide range of users in the design of their products. Power modules for inverterized motor drive applications are also part of a current trend due to the advantages that offer such as space-savings and ease of assembly. Integrated power modules seem to be the solution chosen by most researchers, designers or producers in the field of motor drive applications. Fairchild Semiconductor has developed a series of Smart Power Module (SPM®) devices for a highly efficient integrated solution. They concentrate on the development of an intelligent integrated power module using the new concept of building structure and advanced packaging technology that is the means of achieving an excellent, cost-effective solution. This module offers tremendous advantages such as increased reliability, design flexibility, simple construction, easy assembly, increase motor efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the inverter power stage for home appliance applications. The objective of this project is to perform simulation of SPM® via Fairchild Motion Design Tool and analysis the data by using switching loss calculation design tool via Microsoft excel to determine the efficiency of MOSFET and IGBT in smart power module. In this thesis, there will be further explanation about IGBT and MOSFET, Brushless DC motor (BLDC), Universal motor, motor efficiency and power loss.
