Explanation:
ovo je samo predlog!! Nadam se da ti pomoci.

DYNAMIC BRAKE

"A common option on Diesel-electric locomotives is dynamic (rheostatic) braking."

"Dynamic brakes ("rheostatic brakes" in the UK), unlike regenerative brakes, dissipate the electric energy as heat by passing the current through large banks of variable resistors. Vehicles that use dynamic brakes include forklifts, Diesel-electric locomotives and streetcars."

REGENERATIVE BRAKE

A regenerative brake is a mechanism that reduces vehicle speed by converting some of its kinetic energy into another useful form of energy. This captured energy is then stored for future use or fed back into a power system for use by other vehicles.

For example, electrical regenerative brakes in electric railway vehicles feed the generated electricity back into the supply system. In battery electric and hybrid electric vehicles, the energy is stored in a battery or bank of capacitors for later use.

agree  Mira Stepanovic: regenerative brake in this case: "reg. braking is employed whereby the current produced during braking is fed back into the power supply system for use by other traction units, instead of being wasted as heat" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_braking
