0 The Optimization of the Electro-Discharge Machining Process Using Response

(BQ) In this paper, working current, working voltage, oil pressure, spark gap Pulse On Time and Pulse Off Time on Material Removal Rate (MRR) and Surface Finish (Ra) has been studied. Empirical models for MRR and Ra have been developed by conducting a designed experiment based on the Grey Relational Analysis. Genetic Algorithm (GA) based multi-objective optimization for maximization of MRR and minimization of Ra has been done by using the developed empirical models. Optimization
results have been used for identifying the machining conditions. For verification of the empirical models and the optimization results, focused experiments have been conducted in the rough and finish machining regions.
