    Hey everyone,

    So, for my Electric Drives class, I'm building a circuit that controls a DC motor via a 120VAC source. It has to use counter current braking and dynamic braking, and utilizes a triggering circuit. We already have an H-bridge circuit configured for it, and are trying to figure out what type of DC motor to use. It must be low voltage. I thought about using a compound wound motor, since which will give us more control over the flux, but I cannot find one for sale ANYWHERE. Please help!

    DC motor characteristics are typcially spec'd to the type of load being driven, and you haven't given us any information on that. If it's just to test your drive, then whatever comes up at the local bone yard.
