    - A controlled erosion of electrically conducting material by using fast and repetitive electric discharge between the tool and the workpiece is called as electrical discharge machining (EDM).

    - The spark gap in Electoral Discharge Machining (EDM) process is maintained such that the gap voltage is around 70% of supply voltage.

    - Generally, the spark gap is adjusted between 0.01 to 0.1 mm.

    - The spark gap voltage is maintained at 70% of the supply voltage for charging the capacitor bank.
