I want to know how can I heat a plate at 2KW using an electrical circuit. I need this circuit for a research project. I have to heat a large area so I am hoping that I could use something like a wire mesh to heat the plate.
I was looking to directly supply 220V AC to a resistive wire, but my advisor says it might be dangerous to do so.
I would be grateful if you could help me out with the circuit.
Plate Dimensions: 400mm x 64mm base area.
