Abstract

In order to improve the optimal performance of a machining process, a booster to improve the serve control system performance with high stability for EDM is needed. According to precise movement of machining process using electrical discharge (EMD), adaptive control is proposed as a major option for accuracy and performance improvement. This article is done to design adaptive controller based on self-tuning regulator (STR) using adaptive online detection methods of gradient MIT and normalized gradient MIT to adjust machine's movement time in the control process. Process performance after controller design shows that determined Gaps location at different points is appropriate and improves machining rates almost 100%.
