Single phase matrix converter for radio frequency induction heating

By N Nguyen-Quang, D A Stone, Chris Bingham and M P Foster

Abstract

Conventional converters for radio frequency induction heating usually follow an AC-DC-AC structure, which can exhibit non-unity power factor and introduce large harmonic currents into the utility supply. The need for a direct converter for radio frequency induction heating, featuring unity power factor, and sinusoidal input current, has motivated the development of a single phase matrix converter as an induction heater. A novel commutation strategy is therefore required to ensure smooth operation of the converter whilst creating a high frequency output under soft switching conditions. The operating principle and features of the proposed converter are described here, and experimentally verifie
