Selection of Power Semiconductor Switches – a Tool to Reduce Switching & Conduction Losses of High Frequency Hybrid Resonant Inverter fed Induction Cooker

Nitai Pal, Pradip Kumar Sadhu, Dola Sinha and Atanu Bandyopadhyay

Abstract—An exhaustive method for the selection of different power semiconductor switches for high frequency hybrid resonant inverter fed induction heater is presented here. Heating coil of the induction heater is made of litz wire which minimizes the skin effect and proximity effect at high operating frequency. With the calculated optimum values of inductance and resistance of heating coil at a particular operating frequency, high frequency hybrid resonant inverter topology has been simulated using PSPICE software as well as constructing the experimental model of same rating. Obtained the voltage waveforms across heating coil and current waveforms through it, have been taken for further analysis. From this analysis, selection of suitable power semiconductor switches like IGBT, GTO and MOSFET are made. Waveforms have been shown to justify the feasibility for real implementation of high frequency hybrid resonant inverter fed induction heater in domestic applications.

Index Terms—Hybrid resonant inverter, Induction heater, PSPICE simulation, Semiconductor switches.
