What is Induction Heating? What are its benefits?

Induction heating is the process where an electrically conductive workpiece is placed in a copper coil through which an alternating current flows.The magnetic field created by this alternating current causes current to flow within the workpiece.Since the workpiece has an inherent electrical resistance to the current flow, heat is generated.The induction heating principle is traced back to that of the transformer effect. The primary winding is the coil and the secondary winding is the workpiece.
