This project presents efficient “Full Bridge High Frequency Series Resonant Inverter for Induction Heating application”. In general, the induction-heating technique requires high-frequency current that is capable of inducing high-frequency eddy current in the work piece that results in heating. In this project series resonant inverter featuring soft switch on transitions is used. A cost-effective active snubber circuit is used to optimize the switch off transition. Active snubber uses active components. This allows the converter to operate under a wide range of operating conditions. The series resonant inverter consists of resonant circuit and it delivers maximum power to the load at resonant frequency. The inverter system is designed and the simulation is done using Matlab.
