I have a project where I have a 10-pound flywheel being spun up by a 48v 400w cnc spindle brushless motor at 5000 rpm, using a WS55-220S motor controller.
As such, when the power to the motor stops the motor/flywheel are still spinning due to the momentum of the flywheel. My concern is that this may be damaging the WS55-220S motor controller because of the regenerative energy being produced by the brushless motor/flywheel.
Or am I being overly cautious as the WS55-220S motor controller is capable of handling this regenerative energy? I should mention that the flywheel will be freewheeling, gradually spinning down and not come to a hard stop.
I tried looking online to find any answers regarding the WS55-220S motor controller's ability to deal with regenerative energy but cannot locate any mentioning of.
If I do need protection from the regenerative energy being produced, how should it be implemented?
