We have analyzed the characteristics of dc-induction heating of aluminium billets both numerically and experimentally and developed a numerical model for the calculation of the power and temperature distributions inside the billet during the heating. We validated the model by comparison with the experimental results from a laboratory-scale prototype using permanent magnets.We studied the heating process of a real scale system by means of the model, taking into account the weakening of the mechanical properties during the heating. We provide an example of design of an industrial scale dc induction heater.

Abstract

We have analyzed the characteristics of dc-induction heating of aluminium billets both numerically and experimentally and developed a numerical model for the calculation of the power and temperature distributions inside the billet during the heating. We validated the model by comparison with the experimental results from a laboratory-scale prototype using permanent magnets.We studied the heating process of a real scale system by means of the model, taking into account the weakening of the mechanical properties during the heating. We provide an example of design of an industrial scale dc induction heater.
