A Half-Bridge Isopulse Power Supply For WEDM
In Wire Electro Discharge Machine (WEDM), as the big randomicity of electro discharge, single discharge energy is various. In this paper a resistor-less and half-bridge power supply is investigated based on pulse width modulation(PWM), whose single discharge energy is equal , adopting discharge control strategy of breakdown waiting. And the experiment shows the cutting speed and surface roughness of this isopluse power supply is superior to that of traditional isofrequency power supply.
