Industrial heating using energy efficient induction technology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


Abstract in Undetermined
The demands for energy efficent heating solutions for the manufacturing industry can be met by a new
induction heating platform, presented in this article. A new concept and technology to design and
manufacture induction heating unit is presented, as well as a prototype induction heater, evaluated and tested
in an industrial environment. Improvements compared to existing heating solutions can be clearly shown, e.g.
higher heating efficiency, no requirement for advanced cooling, a higher geometrical flexibility and also
environmental gains. The Greenheat platform is built on Litz wiring, SMC flux conductors, and a casting
technology which is outlined in the article.
