In order to be able to make a proper effort estimation, the first thing to do should be to clearly define the task. Based on this task, the level of detail for a physically correct model can then be determined. Ultimately, the principle “only as many details as necessary” saves time and money!
If you are still in the concept phase, layout details and possibly a precise component selection are not yet available. In this phase, however, no accuracies of +-1 K are expected from the simulation results.
Often there is a difference in effort, whether you are only interested in the temperature distribution in steady state or whether you want to see the time warm-up of clocked components with a temperature-controlled fan.
