    TO-220 diode thermal simulation issue

    Chung Chihung

      Hi guys, I started to simulate TO-220 diode with flow simulation recently. But the results have big different with experiment value. Following is condition: T ambient :50C , the power dissipation of diode is 1.5 watt. I don't know how to create the TO-220 model accurately. Do I need to create die ,copper,SiO2...etc. ? Is there anybody has experience with TO-220 thermal simulation? Please give me some suggest to figure out this tough issue. Thank you~

      Attachment file is my simulation results.
