For the induced electromotive force (Figure 6), a Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) was applied and the space harmonics content of the induced electromotive force was computed see Figure 7.
In case of AC furnaces, the mixing process cannot be controlled and the forces that are created by joining the eddy current magnetic fields, 50 Hz time varying magnetic field and induced electromotive forces, are not in accordance with the weight of the molten metal that has to be mixed.
