A microcontroller based circuit is developed for driving the IGBT switches of a bridge resonant power converter used for induction heating of metals. When a resonant power converter is used for induction heating the load is variable due to the effects of the heating process making the converter to operate out of resonance. This effect decreases the converter output power and increases switching loses. In order to maintain constant output power operating constantly on the resonant frequency a microcontroller program and circuit are developed. The control circuit corrects the operating frequency according to the load changes measuring the output voltage to current phase difference, hence keeping the converter at resonance. The presented circuit is tested with simulations and its operation is confirmed practically with a prototype board.
