Induction heating of strips and sheets

Teacher Hans De Keulenaer, Bernard Nacke

Description

In this course the principles of induction heating of strips and sheets will be explained. During the introduction the author will show the wide range of applications for heating of strips and sheets and different heating methods: conventional gas or resistance heating, induction heating. Induction heating has many advantages against conventional heating methods: faster heating, higher total efficiency, better adaptation to the heating requirements. In the second part the two different methods of induction heating - longitudinal and transverse flux heating – will be described. The fundamentals, differences and advantages of each method will be explained. The third part will give an overview about industrial applications of induction strip heating. Along selected examples the possibilities for the design of induction strip heating systems are shown. The application of numerical simulation methods for the design of longitudinal and transverse flux heating methods will be explained in detail. Especially for the design of transverse flux heating systems a design method using mathematical optimization algorithms is demonstrated in detail. The results of the numerical simulation will be compared with data from lab experiments or from industrial production.
