theory of dc injection braking


Thread Starter


can anyone tell me how to calculate the braking torque developed through dc injection braking in induction motors?
I don't have the formula. However, according to my old VFD training material (partly derived from Industry textbooks), the rules-of-thumb include:

- Idc can be up to 2-3 times nominal
- Brake time proportional to Idc squared
DC current calculation using two or three of the stator leads for either wye or delta windings as well as theory was presented to List about Dec
