Structural Analysis and Building an EDM Process Model
The insufficient information about the mechanism of EDM process affects decision-making related to operation, parameter adjustment, and automatic control. Without a thorough understanding of the process dynamical features, it is difficult to determine a suitable model to describe such processes. This research employs the chaotic analytical techniques to determine the level of complexity of an EDM process; the correlation dimension method. With the understanding of the process complexity and its composition by correlation dimension analysis, a well-defined model is proposed. Finally, by using this model structure and size, an online time-varied predictive model was developed and verified by another experiment.
