DEPENDENCE OF THE ACTIVE POWER OF THE SERIAL RESONANT BRIDGE CONVERTER FROM THE PHASE DIFFERENCE AND THE DUTY CYCLE
Serial resonant bridge converter commonly used in process of induction heating on metal materials. In these applications during the heating process, the converter load equivalent electrical parameters are changed. This contributes to the transferred power from the converter to the induction device to change. In this paper with mathematical analysis are determined the quantities from which depends the active power of the resonant converter. Derived is an equation that gives the dependence of the active power from the phase angle between the voltage and current the converter as and from the duty cycle. This equation can be used in control methods to maintain maximum convertor power transfer.
