A simulation method to predict a fuser performance is presented. It is based on the 2D thermal analysis using Comsol software. The analysis model consists of a 2 roll-type IH fuser and paper with toner on it. A sequence of warm-up, print, ready, and warm-up again is simulated. The warm-up time to print, print power, ready temperature, ready power, and FCOT (first copy out time) are estimated. Based on the analysis results the TEC (typical electricity consumption) is estimated for the fuser. The estimated fuser performance is compared to the measured data from the fuser jig test.
