What is Regenerative Braking, And How Does It Work?
Regenerative Braking is widely used in the electric car industry. It works by turning the car’s kinetic energy into electrical energy to charge the battery. The friction involved in turn slows down the car. If you have ever driven an electric car then you will feel how effective regenerative braking is.
Indeed it is so effective that simply lifting off the accelerator provides enough braking to slow the car down, allowing you to minimize the brake function.
