(0549) 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 domestic induction Heater by means of computational simulations. The calculation will be performed assuming normal operation conditions required to measure the magnetic field by means of a triple loop antenna, also called van Veen & Bergervoet antenna, generally employed to test the compliance with the emission regulations in the frequency range of the band A and band B i.e. 5-55 kHz.
