I finally got my half bridge inverter to work without exploding. When i turn it on, the signal on the tank circuit side is in ac, although i cannot seem to make it sinusoidal(tuned). it is, however, pretty close. when i put a metal rod in the coil, nothing happens. it doesnt even start to get warm. i know i am using a rather low voltage compared to other induction heaters, but wouldnt it still work at this voltage? Is it because the circuit is not fully tuned? should i use a different driver(not the ir2111)? ive included a picture of the schematic.
