Induction heating using a 2-phase travelling wave setup

Frogner, Kenneth LU ; Cedell, Tord LU and Andersson, Mats LU (2014) In International Journal of Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics 44(2). p.217-226
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

A laboratory implementation of a two-phase travelling wave induction heating setup is described. The focus is the development of a versatile power control system for multi-coil experiments and parameter studies.

The drive system features high temporal accuracy, full real-time controllability, and integrated measurement technology, analyzed step wise. The performance was tested using a full pitch travelling wave inductor based on litz wire with a flux concentrator from a powder material. Thermographic images from the experiments are presented and the results are compared with simulations. The challenges related to multi-coil configurations are explained, many of which are difficult to... (More)
