Conventional Converters usually implement AC-DC-AC Structures for high frequency Induction Heating. This results in large harmonic currents and power factor near to unity. This paper highlights AC-AC single stage converter topology for Induction heating. The Matrix Converter provided in this topology helps gain high frequency besides high input power quality. Since the input phases are directly linked to output phase, intermediate storage device is eliminated. The Present system in its soft commutation mode is the configuration of an Induction heater Modeling and Simulation of the proposed system which is exemplified.
