## Energy-efficient methods and means of electrotechnologies for the ultrapure copper smelting in domestic induction installations

New methods and means of mathematical modelling of induction melting processes of copper have been developed. They consist in simultaneous consideration of nonlinear properties of materials and features of three-dimensional geometry of elements of the electrotechnical complex. Means of mathematical modelling of three-dimensional inhomogeneous electromagnetic and thermal fields with strong interconnections, arising in the elements of the electrical complex in the process of induction melting of ultrapure copper and the manufacture of wire rod from it, have been developed.
