Why 10kW?

  • It is a useful size in a transition from home economics to industrial power. Homes can have 10kW power outlets as a standard option (50a at 240V)
  • For industriall power, larger power levels can be built by: multiplying wire connections, scaling the power stage, and using the same control circuit.

Great study, guy became active again in 2021 from initial work in 2010 - Tutorial at http://inductionheatertutorial.com/

  • Note - someone capable of documenting and adding some calculations and data like this is worth learning from. This is the best tutorial on induction power I've seen so far - this circuitry can be scaled likely to 100kW without much change in topology, using Extensive Scalability of components.
