If a motor slowed to a halt, will the current go up or down
This looks a little like a homework question, but I'll assume it isn't.## \\ ## I believe when an electric motor is rotating, it causes a reverse Faraday EMF in the primary current input line, thereby making for a lower current than what occurs if the motor is not rotating. When not rotating, it has a considerably higher current. ## \\ ## I think @jim hardy is our expert in this area. Perhaps he can also give an input.
that's exactly the case.Please correct me @jim hardy if this is not the case:
