Improved AC-AC Converter For Induction Heating Applications

Induction heating applications require high frequency currents which are obtained using resonant converters viz., Series and Parallel resonant inverters. The resonance frequency in these converters will be tuned to a high value. In this paper a single-switch parallel resonant converter for induction heating is simulated. It is compared with the existing inverter topologies; half bridge and full bridge. The circuit consists of input LC-filter, bridge rectifier and one controlled power switch. The switch operates in soft commutation mode and serves as a high frequency generator. Output power is controlled via switching frequency.
