I'm working on a control circuit to brake a single phase induction motor in a washing machine. The motor is (PSC)Permanent split capacitive motor with a 6UF capacitor as in the picture.

I've searched for braking techniques and I found that there is a method for braking using DC circuit, but, unfortunately, I couldn't find more details about that method and how much current needed for such circuit. Please if anybody knows anything about that method please reply
