I have an assignment where I have to reverse engineer the induction stove.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that this device works by having a changing magnetic field created by putting an ac current through coils of wire. The magnetic field induces a current in any magnetic pots or pans placed on the stove on top of the coils. The pots and pans have internal resistance so there is power loss in the form of thermal energy which heats the pot up.

I know that Faraday's Law of Induction is involved in the induction of the current in the pan. Also, Joules Law is related to the generation of heat energy.

My problem is that I cannot link these concepts to any mathematical equations in order to explain the principles behind the stove.

I would be really grateful if anyone can give me any help or point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.
