Thermal Equivalent Circuit Toolbox 2.0

The Thermal Equivalent Circuit Toolbox 2.0 is a Matlab based code used to formulate and solve thermal equivalent circuits. Its development was largely sponsored by the Office of Naval Research through the Electric Ship Research and Development Consortium ONR Grant N00014-08-1-0080 as well as ONR Grant N00014-08-1-0397. It has been at use at Purdue for several years to support the design of magnetic components such as inductors as well as electric machinery.

The TEC Toolbox is coordinated by S.D. Sudhoff. Note that individual user questions cannot be supported as the code is distributed at no cost. However, error reports or comments to improve future versions are welcome.

The TEC Toolbox is free software: it can be redistributed and/or modified under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
