Abstract – This paper suggests the enriched methodology of Single Phase Matrix Converter(SPMC) fed induction heater that could synthesize a greater AC output voltage from a given AC supply voltage. This type of converter is called a single phase buck–boost matrix converter. This converter topology can buck and boost with step changed frequency, and both the voltage and the frequency can be stepped up or stepped down. Most of the ac–ac converters used in home appliances is based on single output dc link inverters, which provide a cost effective and direct solution. MC offers advantage of a large capacity and compact converter system without the need for an energy storage element due to the absence of DC link. The simulation results is used to verify the converter can produce an output voltage with three different frequencies 100, 50, and 25 Hz, and that the amplitude of the output voltage can be bucked and boosted. Domestic Induction Heating (IH) technology has become more popular in recent years due to features such as cleanness, safety, quicker warming, and higher efficiency, which outperforms other traditional heating systems.
