What is Plugging or Reverse Current Braking of DC Motor?

plugging of separately excited dc motor with braking resistor

In Plugging or Reverse Current Braking, supply polarity of  armature voltage of  DC motor is reversed to rapid stop the motor. The armature voltage(V) and back EMF (Eb) acts in the same direction during plugging. In plugging motor exerts opposite torque to retard its speed. The application of the plugging is to immediately stop the DC motor or … Read more
