Hardening of steel wires requires heating the wires above their Curie temperature,
temperature at which the material becomes nonmagnetic causing a sudden change
in the load. This change affects to the induction heating converters and is difficult to be evaluated due to the complexity of the problem and the interdependence of the parameters. In this paper a continuous Post-Curie wire heating model using commercial FEM software is presented and evaluated for two cases.
