[Phys-l] Panasonic inverter technology

I don't believe it. Panasonic claims the oven is always on instead of pulsed to obtain < 100% power.

Why? Because a cavity magnetron operates only w/ a narrow range of applied EMF; that's why they pulse them in the first place. So how do they do it? I suspect in the same way light dimmers (not the "Variac" type).

bc, waiting to be disabused.
