Nowadays, the electricity has turned into an essential element for transportation of the society. And, the linear induction motor (LIM) is having wide application for high-speed transportation services. In this study, a new improved model of the rotary induction motor is presented. The proposed single sided LIM model with reduced slots has been implemented in software and hardware both. The software implementation has been done using MATLAB and Proteus software tools; and its hardware model is implemented and tested in the Electrical Machine Design Laboratory. In this paper, the dynamic behavior of the motor has been illustrated and obtained results confirm its regenerative braking mode.

... This in turn induces a voltage on the conductive wall, which generates an eddy current in the conducting outer layer of the secondary. The interaction between the eddy current and the changing electromagnetic field generates electromagnetic thrust on the plate in the longitudinal direction of the motor [1][2][3][4]. ...

This paper presents the conventional methods of braking of Induction motor that is regenerative, plugging, and Dynamic braking. Due to dynamic braking a strong call of current occurs and reaches upto 7pu which limits its use. Other methods lags due to torque requirement of Induction motor. To overcome these drawbacks a new method Discrete Frequency Control(DFC) is used. The proposed method results are obtained by MATLAB simulation.

This work deal with the problem related to the energy recovered in an induction motor drive. During deceleration, a regenerative braking control strategy allows the recovery of the mechanical energy stored in an inertial mass. This process involves the conversion of the kinetic energy into electric energy. The parts that compose the system are a squirrel cage induction motor variable frequency drive and controller and the mechanical system (flywheel) representing the inertia of the automobile. In order to test the performance of the intelligent control, it is compared with a conventional control scheme. The conventional control scheme is used to generate the samples of the input and output signals, which allows the identification of the dynamics of the system (plant). Also, it is used as a reference for the performance of the intelligent control.
