By means of the developed physical and mathematical model of electro burst, an analysis of the power characteristics of wave disturbances generated by the expanding discharge channel in a solid material has been carried out. The dynamics of the generator energy conversion into the plasma channel and into the wave of mechanical stresses in the solid placed in a liquid has been considered. Conformably to the electro discharge destruction of strong materials, the relation of the discharge circuit parameters with the power characteristics of wave has been analysed. The prediction of a fracture pattern has been made depending on the discharge circuit parameters.
