  1. Picture 1: Braking Resistors


A braking resistor acts as a load bank in motion systems where a motor in controlled by a drive. When decelerating, the motor become generator where it produces electrical energy which must go somewhere. To brake quickenough, theenergy must be dumped into a power resistor and to be dissipated as heat.
