## How does ZVS induction heater work?

The ZVS oscillator pushes and pulls current though a coil around the object that is being heated. This constant changing of the current’s direction creates a fluctuating magnetic field. This induces many small eddy currents in the metal(refer to the diagram above).

## How does a ZVS circuit work?

The ZVS oscillator pushes and pulls current though a center-tapped coil around the ferrite core of a TV’s flyback transformer. This constant changing of the current’s direction creates a fluctuating magnetic field in the ferrite.

How does induction furnace work?

In the induction furnace, a coil carrying alternating electric current surrounds the container or chamber of metal. Eddy currents are induced in the metal (charge), the circulation of these currents producing extremely high temperatures for melting the metals and for making alloys of exact composition.

How big can an induction coil be?

commonly used for induction heating coils. Diameters can be as large as 2 in (5.1 cm) for high power applications.

### What are the two types of induction furnace?

There are two main types of induction furnace: coreless and channel.

### Why is capacitor used in induction coil?

Solution : A capacitor is used in the primary circuit of an induction coil because when the circuit is broken, a large induced voltage is used up in charging the capacitor. So, the sparking or any damages are avoided.

What frequency is induction heating?

100 kHz to 200 kHz
Most induction heating devices (with induction frequency control) have a frequency range of 100 kHz to 200 kHz. The output range typically incorporates 2.5 kW to 40 kW. Induction heaters in this range are used for smaller components and applications such as induction hardening an engine valve.

What is frequency in induction furnace?

Frequencies used in induction melting vary from 50 cycles per second (mains frequency) to 10,000 cycles per second (high frequency). The higher the operating frequency, the greater the maximum amount of power that can be applied to a furnace of given capacity and the lower the amount of turbulence induced.

## How much power does an induction furnace use?

Standard power consumption for steel induction furnace is 625 kWh/ton.

## How does induction system work?

The induction system brings air in from the atmosphere, mixes it with fuel, and delivers the fuel/air mixture (fuel/oil/ air mixture for two-stroke engines) to the engine intake and to the cylinders where combustion occurs. Outside air enters the induction system through an air filter on the engine.
