With the rapid development of power electronic devices, high-power IGBT is increasingly popular, It is used as a switching device in SVG static var generator. Due to the large switching losses, we need to design a suitable radiator, to maintain the highest temperature of 80 C in working condition, then we can ensure the performance of the circuit devices and materials don't influenced by the heat stress. In this paper, we take infineon FF450R17ME4-B11 as an example, the software of ANSYS ICEPAK is using to do thermal si-mulation of the heat source, Optimally design the size of the radiator, keeping it work under the temperature of 80 C.Then conclude some rules in the process of radiator design.
