Regenerative drives convert braking energy into free electricity

ABB’s new ACS800-11 variable speed regenerative drives capture braking energy from electric motors. They return it in to the network as free electricity, significantly improving energy efficiency. In industry, electric motors are often used in applications with frequent brake applications. A braking chopper and external electrical resistors dissipate braking energy as heat. Resistor braking often […]
