Dynamic Braking and Plugging

Dynamic Braking: Apart from Regenerative Braking, another method of reversing the direction of torque and Braking the motor is dynamic braking. In this method of braking the motor which is at a running condition is disconnected from the source and connected across a resistance. When the motor is disconnected from the source, the rotor keeps … Read more Dynamic Braking and Plugging

Need for Electrical Braking in Electrical Drives

There are two types of Braking: i)     Mechanical Braking and  ii)     Electrical Braking. In Mechanical Braking the speed of the machine is reduced solely by mechanical process but Electrical Braking is far more interesting than that because the whole process is depended on the current and torque directions. We can say that it is the process … Read more Need for Electrical Braking in Electrical Drives
