Research of Pulse Inversion Power Supply of ECM and its Techniques
In order to improve machining accuracy and surface quality effectively in ECM (electrochemical machining), a novel pulse inversion power supply has been presented, which has following merits such as high-frequency short pulse, high-power, and compact size. The scheme of full bridge inversion has been selected in this power supply model, and feedback circuit realizes voltage adjusted automatically, and guarantees to stability of voltage. Protect circuit has designed to avoid the problem of workpiece-burn. Finally, a series of electrochemical mechanical polishing tests using the power supply have been carried out, and the results have proved that it helps to achieve well surface quality processed, and improve machining accuracy, and also verify feasibility of its scheme.
