Self oscillated resonant inverters have the advantages of low cost and simplicity. DC-AC power conversion can be achieved without using special drivers. In this study, self oscillated half bridge series resonant inverter topology is designed and applied to induction heater as a boiler part of home type absorption cooler system. The designed system has rapid and stable heating/ cooling response compared to conventional resistance heated system. Self oscillated resonant inverter can achieve soft switching and maintain resonant tracking with simple and cheap drive circuit during all heating period.
