This paper illustrates the implementation of a method to optimize energy regeneration in a variety of dynamic systems. Two control strategies were first simulated on a computer and then tested on an electro-mechanical apparatus. The test apparatus consisted of a battery powered mechanism containing a d-c motor, an electric power converter and a brake, connected to an active load simulator. The simulations and the tests confirmed that in many cases, to maximize regeneration, some power must be dissipated in a brake. For high torque at low speed, regeneration could be achieved only if a brake was used in conjunction with the actuator.
