    How can I connect a brake chopper to a gate drive?
    As my understanding the brake chopper needs a PWM signal from the gate drive to operate. But i do not know at which pin of the gate drive the mosfet of the brake chopper has to be connected. The gate drive I use is the HIP4081A. Do I have to use different gate drive for the brake chopper?

    I think you want a DC Regenerative Brake circuit, can you post your circuit?
