Induction heating is the technique that heats the conductive material by high frequency large AC magnetic field. For efficient generation of the AC magnetic field, induction heating technique commonly utilizes the resonance between the heating coil and the resonating capacitor. The resonance is generally excited by applying the AC voltage of the resonant frequency. However, the resonant frequency is unstable because this frequency is susceptible to the disposition of the material to be heated. As a result, high efficiency high power induction heating system often suffers from unstable operation. This paper addresses this problem by proposing application of a simple automatic resonant frequency tuning circuit to the induction heating. This circuit can automatically achieve equivalent adjustment of the resonance frequency at the operating frequency without special control or the circuit sensing. In addition, this paper elucidated the control method of this tuning circuit to achieve the soft-switching operation in both of the inverter that drives the heating coil and the tuning circuit itself. The experiment revealed successful stabilization of the resonant frequency as well as satisfaction of the soft-switching condition both of the inverter and the tuning circuit, supporting effectiveness of the tuning circuit for induction heating.
