Efficient energy management in residential areas is a key issue in modern energy systems. In this scenario, induction heating (IH) becomes an alternative to classical heating technologies because of its advantages such as efficiency, quickness, safety, and accurate power control. In this article, the design of modern flexible cooking surfaces featuring IH technology is presented. The main advantages and technical challenges are given, and the design of the inductor system and the power electronic converter is detailed. The feasibility of the proposed system is verified through a laboratory prototype.
