Induction Heating and Forced Cooling Analysis with Flux®

Principle of induction heating and forced cooling (shower): induction heating is the process of heating an electrically conducting object without contact. The flowing of the current through the coil (see Fig.1) generates an alternating magnetic field. This field induces current in the electric conductor (eddy current). The repartition of eddy current depends on the shape of the electric conductor, the frequency, and physical properties of the material used in the electric
conductor. In addition to this, the high frequency used in induction heating applications gives rise to a phenomenon called skin effect: all the current is concentrated only on the boundaries.
