1. 2. Set up the equipment as shown in Fig-1 and Fig-2. Note: The thermal switches of the wound-rotor induction machine and magnetic powder brake unit must be connected together. 2 . Before using the brake controller and magnetic powder brake unit. Install the required modules in the experimental frame. Electrically connect the brake controller to the magnetic powder brake using the RS232 cable. Mechanically couple the wound-rotor induction machine to magnetic powder brake unit using a coupling. The stator windings of the motor are connected in delta. If any danger occurs. you must first calibrate the torque display of the brake controller to 0 kg. Terminate this exercise and consult your laboratory assistant.
