January 16, 2013 - TEST #14 : Here is a new serie of tests of the GEGENE v1.3 with the flat bifilar coil v1.1 and the induction cooker manufactured by "Rosenstein & Söhne" and with the reference NC-3050.
In this test, I have used this setup below of halogen lamps as loads :
The TOTAL POWER of the LOAD connected at the OUTPUT of the GEGENE is 3550 Watts
In this test, the output power has been limited to the level 5/10 i.e. at the middle power (about 1200 W).
TEST #12 RESULTS :
To measure the voltage and the current at the output for powering the halogen lamps, the two scope probes are set to X10 and are connected to the flat bifilar coil output. The probe Ch1 is used to measure the voltage accross the flat bifilar coil output and the probe Ch2 is used to measure the current i.e. the voltage accross a 0.1 Ohm non inductive resistor Mundorf MR10 10W. Then the datas are sent to a datasheet to compute true RMS values and the efficiency. The electrical power input of the induction cooker is measured with a Wattmeter Energy Logger 4000F directly connected on the power grid.
The True RMS values of the voltages on Ch1 and Ch2 are computed in real time by the Rigol digital oscilloscope ...
The electrical power for the induction cooker is measured with a Wattmeter Energy Logger 4000F directly connected on the power grid :
The Wattmeter measures 1155 Watt at the INPUT of the induction cooker.
Above the True RMS voltage measured by the Rigol digital oscilloscope.
So as to get a good accuracy of the measured values for the mathematical computation, the sampling rate has been set to 20.00 MSa/s
Below, the scope datas computed with GNU Octave 3.2.4 (freeware and full compatible version of MATLAB)
