In this work, results have been presented related to the influence of selected electrical parameters of the AEDG process on the energy consumption and state of the internal stresses in the outer layer at this stage of the process, in comparison with conventional grinding. The basis of this work has been possible by investigations of the deep grinding of surfaces of the titanium alloy Ti6Al4V with the use of a CBN grinding wheel and sintered carbide S20S with using diamond grinding wheel with metallic binding agent. For the comparative evaluation of the conventional grinding and AEDG, measurements of the specific grinding energy, energy of the spark discharge and internal stresses in the surface layer have been used.
