A Novel Boosting Technique for Induction Heating Application with ZVS Soft Switching
AbstractThis paper presents a direct ac-ac converter boosting technique in induction heating (IH) application using half bridge configuration. The main design features are efficiency and user performance. Efficiency is one of the important parameter when designing a converter for induction heating application. The benefits of this direct ac-ac resonant converter under half bridge configuration are reduced number of components, low cost, reduced size of the converter for same power rating and direct conversion solution. Its operating performance and high frequency power regulation characteristics are explained on the basis of simulation. The simulations were obtained by MATLAB/SIMULINK.
