Chinese 1800 Watt Induction heater, 10 minute stress test at 1500W

This test is being run at 36VDC and everything stays cool over a course of 10 minutes, I would say it can run stable at this power input. The 5 minute test at 40VDC showed resonant capacitors heating up.

Test is powered by the “2200 Watt server power supply for induction heating”

2200 Watt server power supply for induction heating

A new 2200 Watt power supply made from server power supplies, and with steady cameras 🙂

Test of it in a long induction heater run is being edited and will come online in a few days

2000 Watt laptop charger for induction heating

I built my first experimental cheap power supply for the 1800 Watt induction heater and it was a great success!

12 laptop chargers put together for 40V 51A.

Unboxing a Chinese 1800 Watt Induction heater

I finally got around to get the IH out of the box and repair it, here is part 1 of a series of videos on this IH.

This is a 1800 Watt Induction heater that I bought from ebay at 40 Euro, I avoided the cheapest seller for the simple reason that they all have bad reviews, so be sure to check that out before just buying the cheapest.

The future parts will be power supply building and testing.

Pete who started the thread has a wide ranged knowledge of induction heaters. Check out Pete Stanaitis website: https://spaco.org/Blacksmithing/ZVSInductionHeater/ZVS1800Watt/1800-2500WattZVSInductionHeaterNotes.htm and his take on the 1800W IH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S66Y-EZYhjo

My Tesla coil DRSSTC1 exploded 12 days before a show, panic!

Can you guess the song that was played?

Silent death during a MIDI playback, once power is turned back on, the bridge short circuits and burns outs.

I quickly changed it to a SKM200GB123 inverter bridge that I had around, built for another experimental project, hence why its a little crude.

It took 3-4 evenings/nights to locate all the faults, replace parts and get it running again.

I am happy.

DRSSTC design guide updated with MMC design guide

It only took me a mere 4 years from I first started this article about the MMC until it is now done for public released 🙂

Not that it took me 4 full years to write on it, but it has been a on/off gathering of information and then finally making a write-up on it.

I hope this will help many builders understand MMC design better: http://kaizerpowerelectronics.dk/…/drss…/mmc-tank-capacitor/
