BRAKING RESISTOR DESIGNS AND APPLICATIONS

13.05.2008

Brake Resistor

When a motor is driven by its mechanical load, such as in the case of a decelerating flywheel, the motor acts as a generator and the kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy. Often this surplus electrical energy, if it cannot be regenerated, is unwanted and it can be harmful to the electrical motor drive system.

motor

Frequency inverters, which normally have switching frequencies from 2 to 20kHz, produce considerable common-mode (asymmetrical) noise. The fast switching of the DC voltage causes voltage peaks in motor cables and the longer the length of cable the higher the amplitude of the voltage peaks.
