In this paper, at first, a simulation of induction furnace model optimized resonant capacitor is designed for a practical induction furnace with parallel resonant inverter. Then rectifier and inverter snubber circuit are designed. And taken voltage, current, THD and power measured. This measured value comparison with actual working industry furnace data. and conclude that when furnace is not operate at full load that time its power factor is very low. And THD is high.
