This paper presents the investigation and analysis of induction cooker, using half bridge series resonant inverter connected in series with Thyristor controlled reactor(TCR). The supply to this inverter is given through the solar PV panel. Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) is applied for tracking the maximum solar energy. It is applied to the domestic induction heating operation which supplies medium frequency currents (20-100 kHz) to the inductor, which heats up the plate. The simulation of this topology is carried out in the MATLAB/SIMULINK platform. SOLAR PV BASED RESONANT INVERTER FOR INDUCTION COOKER.
