recuperation

Recuperation is the energy recovery of the kinetic energy of electric vehicles, which is fed into the rechargeable battery of

the electric vehicle. There are concepts for energy recovery in electric vehicles. This involves converting the energy generated when the vehicle brakes into electrical energy and feeding it back into the battery. Since the conversion of braking energy is associated with conversion losses, the amount of energy recovered is lossy and thus less than the available kinetic energy.

Recuperation is also used in trolleybuses, trams and other rail vehicles.

Here, the energy generated during braking is fed back into the overhead line.
