Electrical Engineering ⇒ Topic : Electric braking and its types
Electric braking of motors can be broadly classified as
1. Electro-mechanical 2. Electrical.
Electro-mechanical or friction brakes are operated by electro-magnets or electric-operated thyristors.
The disadvantage associated with electro-mechanical brakes is the sudden braking force and accompanying application of shock to the machine.
1. Plugging or counter current braking
2. Rheostatic or dynamic braking
3. Regenerative braking
