  • Publication number: 20180115161
    Abstract: An apparatus for controlling one or more switched high power loads (or heating elements). The apparatus including: one or more switched high power loads (or heating elements), each high power load being powered from a common alternating current power source, and wherein each load is independently switched using a switching signal for zero crossing switching to achieve a desired average power output; the switching signal is generated that comprises a repeated switching sequence; the switching sequence indicates a respective selecting activation for each of the switched high power load over a sequence of half or full cycles.

  • Publication number: 20160014849
    Abstract: A cooking appliance and method for heating an item positioned on the appliance and used in food preparation or food serving or cooking. The appliance including: a chassis having an upper platform for supporting the item in use; an induction element located below the platform for heating the item when positioned on the appliance; a temperature sensing assembly having a temperature sensing element; the temperature sensing element providing a temperature signal indicative of a current temperature of the item; a user interface for enabling a user to select a desired temperature of the item in use; and a processor module that receives the temperature signal and controls power to the induction element for providing the desired temperature; wherein the temperature sensing assembly is exposed to a fan cooling path such that the temperature sensing element is selectively cooled from below.
