Abstract

This paper is mainly concerned with a high frequency soft-switching PWM inverter suitable for consumer induction heating systems. The proposed system is composed of a soft switching chopper based boost PFC converter stage with passive snubber and phase shifted PWM controlled full bridge ZVZCS high frequency inverter stage. Its fundamental operating performances are illustrated and evaluated in the experimental results. Its effectiveness is substantially proved on the basis of the experimental results from a practical point of view.
