Hi Franz,
you find an explanation of this parameter, and the formula for calculating it, in this application note (page 5) https://www.infineon.com/dgdl/Infineon-Discrete_IGBT_Datasheet_Explanation-AN-v01_00-EN.pdf?fileId=5....
It "is defined as the DC collector-emitter current value, which leads to an IGBT junction temperature Tvj,maxwith a starting temperature of TC (usually 25°C or 100°C)".

Best Regards,
Giuseppe
