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”
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.
