Energy and Dynamic Braking

Energy: you can’t destroy it, but you can certainly waste it. That’s what most motorized vehicles do, including trains. Usually, the energy generated when you stop a moving vehicle is dissipated as heat, and is lost to the atmosphere.

The energy dissipated in braking a 207-ton locomotive during the course of one year is enough to power over 8,900 average US households for a year.
