Abstract: The EDM efficiency can be strengthened by suitably defining the critical factors and their values for obtaining desired responses. In the present research work, response surface methodology (RSM) with face centred cubic (FCC) approach is implemented for correlating the response, i.e., material removal rate (MRR) with control factors, i.e., voltage, peak current, pulse on time. These factors provide maximum MRR of 230.6 gm/min. To obtain the optimal solution, genetic algorithm (GA) is coupled with the obtained mathematical model. The dielectric fluid used is kerosene oil. ANOVA and F-test are used to check for model validation. R2 and adjusted R2 which confirms the validity of proposed model. The work piece material used in research work is AISI 4140 steel.

Keywords: response surface methodology; RSM; face centred cubic; FCC; material removal rate; MRR; genetic algorithm; ANOVA.
