A Zero Current Switching AC-AC Resonant Converter for Three Phase Induction Heating


  • Department of EEE, KL University, Vaddeswaram - 522502, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, India


This paper proposes the concept of three phase AC to AC resonant converter for Induction heater. As compared with basic converters, AC to AC resonant converter has advantages of less components count, low cost, high reliability and better efficiency. A closed loop control structure is proposed in this paper for controlling three phase resonant converter. Finally, this proposed system is experimentally verified using Matlab/Simulink.
