Analysis of Current Paths in Induction Heating of flat sheets using single sided Longitudinal Field Inductors

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding

Abstract

Longitudinal field inductors are frequently used in the industry for heating of flat objects. This paper aims to illustrate the current paths for the inductor design as a function of workpiece geometry using 3d FEA simulations. The results show how different parameters affect the heating pattern, creating guidelines for the optimal design depending on the requirements and applications. The simulation results are verified using experimental data.
