DC Motor Braking Methods

DC Motor Braking Methods: The need for electric braking was explained earlier, the motor works as a generator developing a negative torque which opposes the motion. Three types of DC Motor Braking Methods are Regenerative braking; Dynamic or Rheostatic braking; and Plugging or reverse voltage braking. 1. Regenerative Braking: In regenerative braking, generated energy is supplied …

Types of DC Motor

Types of DC Motor: The commonly used Types of DC Motor are shown in Fig. 5.1. In a separately excited motor, the field and armature voltages can be controlled independent of each other. In a shunt motor, field and armature are connected to a common source. In case of a series motor, field current is …
