Abstract

Regenerative Braking System is the way of slowing vehicle by using the motors as brakes. Instead of the surplus energy of the vehicle being wasted as unwanted heat, the motors act as generators and return some of it to the overhead wires as electricity. The vehicle is primarily powered from the electrical energy generated from the generator, which burns gasoline. This energy is stored in a larger battery and used by an electric motor that provides motive force to the wheel. The regenerative braking taking place on the vehicle is a way to obtain more efficiency instead of converting kinetic energy to thermal energy through frictional braking, the vehicle can covert a good fraction of its kinetic energy back into charge in the battery using the same principle as an alternator.
