This paper introduces the electrical discharging characteristics of PCD based on experimental studies. The relationship between gap voltage, peak current and electrical resistance of various PCD materials is presented. The influence of peak current on the discharge waveforms is analyzed. The conclusion provides important information for the development of new generators specifically designed for the machining of PCD tools.
