resistance braking

Definitions

Electronics

  • A technique for quickly stopping an electric motor. To brake, the motor is disconnected from its power source, thereby becoming a generator. Then, a connected resistor dissipates the energy of rotation into heat. Also called resistor braking, resistive braking, or dynamic braking.
