Hi all, i'd like to control some heating resistor (2*5kW per phase), so, up to 6 elements, and control their power.
I was thinking about using per phase:
-zero crossing detector to trigger the PWM output of a µ.
-use the PWM output to drive a TRIAC.

Any reference of zzero crossing detector to use?

I also wonder the kind of filter I would need to avoid noise injection onto the main. Any recommendations

Usually heater resistence have a lot of inertia, it's common to drive them in "burst" mode. Whith a zero-cossing triac you let the current flow for n-periods of line voltage (a burst of sinusoidal wave). No needs to syncronize your micro with zero crossing.

Use AC Phase Control to control AC power, not PWM.

use IR2110 DRIVER FOR MOSFET ,USE bridge inverter to control the power.
