Abstract

This paper presents a novel phase shifted ZVS-PWM high frequency load resonant inverter for electromagnetic induction fluid heating (IH) appliances. The proposed high frequency inverter can be achieved stable and efficient zero voltage soft commutation over a widely specified power regulation range from full power to low power by using an active auxiliary quasi resonant snubber. The steady state operating performance of this inverter is evaluated and discussed on the basis of simulation and experimental results for IH dual-packs heater (DPH) of compact fluid heating appliance. Finally, the effectiveness of IH application of the proposed high frequency inverter with auxiliary active quasi-resonant snubber is demonstrated from the practical point of view.
