Induction heating is frequently used in the metalworking industry to heat metals for hardening, soldering, brazing, tempering and annealing. Due to its complexity, the using of simulation to analyze the induction heating process could become very advantageous both in design and economic aspects. In this paper, an analytical model is established using commercial package Cedrat Flux® 10.3, and the model is verified by the experiments. After the establishment of analytical model, an analysis on the effect of workpiece magnetic permeability to the modeling was conducted.
