Abstract This paper proposes a procedure for designing a resonant network for induction cookers that enables the induction heating of magnetic and non-magnetic vessels. In order to design such network, the range of operating frequency must be determined according to the material of the vessels by measuring several parameters, such as equivalent resistance and inductance, which are reflected in the working coil of the vessels. Through this process, the capacitance of the resonant capacitor is determined. The PSIM simulation and experiment results verify the feasibility of the proposed design and the heating performance of the designed resonant network.
