This paper gives a detailed description of implementation of braking by field reversal at laboratory setup of DC machine with modern Siemens DCM drive. The main focus of the paper is implementation of braking procedure of the DC machine using field reversal through didactic approach suited to students of electrical engineering within the course of the electric drives at Faculty of Technical Sciences Čačak. The laboratory test bench allows students to upgrade parts of the setup and test different operation regimes of DC and AC machines, as well as gaining experience of tuning and optimization of the overall motor-load system.
