This paper aims to analyze the conical-shaped compensator applied to infrared (IR) thermometry for planar materials.
The compensator for the IR thermometry system has been analyzed by means of numerical simulations performed in a commercial finite element analysis tool. Afterwards, the characteristics of a final system have been proposed. The simulation results have been validated by means of experimental measurements performed in a prototype of the proposed system.
The proposed conical shape geometry of the compensator is suitable to reduce the errors associated with the temperature estimation by IR thermometry when emissivity of the material is not known with adequate accuracy.
This work proposed an arrangement of conical-shaped compensator to increase the precision in the IR radiation thermometry of planar materials.
In this paper, the conical shape geometry is proposed instead of the classical semi-spherical geometry for the compensator of an IR radiation thermometry system with the purpose of reducing the thickness of the complete system. This new proposal can be advantageous when geometrical constraints are imposed.

The aim of this paper is to propose a design procedure based on the impedance boundary condition in order to simplify the design of inductors for domestic induction heating systems.
An electromagnetic description of the inductor system is performed to substitute the effects of a component, named system load, for a mathematical condition, the so‐called impedance boundary condition. This is suitable to be used in electromagnetic systems involving high conductive materials at medium frequencies, as it occurs in an induction heating system. Applying this approach, a simplified electrical model arises from the general system.
A considerable reduction in the efforts devoted to design a coil for induction heating purposes is achieved, because the solution considering the variation of three physical parameters are projected to a one‐dimensional space only depending on a single parameter named corrected penetration depth. This proposal assesses the working conditions of standard induction systems.
This work is performed to achieve a better understanding of the fundamentals involved in the electromagnetic modeling of an induction heating system. The main goal is the definition of a better coil design process because it is probably the most time‐consuming task in the construction of a complete induction system.
In this paper, the so‐called corrected penetration depth is defined. This single parameter allows explaining the influence of the physical parameter of the inductor load and the excitation frequency in the equivalent of the complete inductor system. The numerical results carried out considering the corrected penetration depth instead of the physical load properties have been validated experimentally.
