Design and control of a prototype training set, which especially the students studying in institutions offering education at undergraduate and associate levels can employ as a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)-controlled simulator of the power supply unit of electroerosion machinery (electrical discharge machinery) that are used frequently during industrial manufacturing processes, has been actualized through this work, for the purpose of training qualified technical personnel needed by companies, who are specialized in control and electromechanics. The training set, therefore, contributes to a large extent to the training process in favor of faculty members, who are to train personnel for the sector, and in favor of students, who should be able to acquire proper education. Working on the prototype allows students to acquire knowledge and practical skills and then make use of those skills for maintaintenance, repair and control of machinery. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
