EDF and Cetim have developed a software called Forg’Induc for optimising the design of induction heating devices for forging industries. The main objective is to minimise the energy consumption of the furnace. It is based on alternative resolution of the electromagnetic and thermal problem. The electrical optimisation finds the electrical parameters that minimise the energy consumption of an existing inductor. The geometrical optimisation gives the design of a new coil for heating new sizes of workpieces.
