Numerical Simulation of PC Steel Bar Induction Heating Process
Based on electromagnetic and temperature field models of nonlinear ferromagnetic materials, this paper conducts a finite element analysis of the induction heating process of PC steel bar, thus obtaining the change curves of temperature, active power, heating efficiency and power density. The main factors and mechanisms affecting the heating efficiency and the temperature uniformity are analyzed systematically by a combination of the simulation result and the experimental fact. This work is expected to contribute significantly for optimizing the key parameters of induction heating production of PC steel bar.
