The induction heating is getting more attention in industrial and domestic applications since it is clean, quick and efficient. The power electronic converter in the induction heating system plays an important role for controlling the voltages and currents with suitable frequency. The efficiency of the power electronic converter is also very important and the techniques are available to improve the efficiency. This project’s objective is to design and implement an induction heating system with an efficient power electronic converter. A prototype induction heating system should be developed in the laboratory incorporating a microcontroller and suitable sensors.
Key Words: Induction heating, Power electronic converter, Efficiency in power electronic converters
