An Interference of High Frequency Series Resonant Inverter in Domestic Induction Heater Estimation in Emission Control Using FEM

Agamani Chakraborty, Debabrata Roy, Pradip Kr Sadhu, Ankur Ganguly, Atanu Banerjee


This work describes a new technology to calculate the magnetic field emission of a High Frequency Series Resonant Inverter
in a domestic induction heater by means of computational simulations. The calculation is performed assuming normal operation
conditions required to measure the magnetic field by means of a triple loop antenna. This triple loop antenna, also known
as a van Veen & Bergervoet antenna, is generally employed to test compliance with emission regulations in the frequency
range of band A and band B i.e. 5-55 kHz.
