What is the soft stop of an electric motor?

In electric motor stop, the traditional control ways are accomplished by momentary power cutting off. But in lots of applications, it's not allowed the motor instant shutdown. For example: high-rise buildings, building's water pump system, it will appear huge water hammer during instant shutdown, to damage the pipe, even the pumps. To reduce and avoid "water hammer" phenomenon, the pumps motor need be shut down gradually, that is soft stop. The soft starter can meet such requirements. In pumping station, soft stop technology can avoid the pump door damaged of the pumping station, to reduce maintenance costs and maintenance works. The soft stop function in soft starter is, when the thyristor gets stop instruction, decrease conduction angle gradually from full conduction, and achieve full closed after a certain time. Stopping time can be adjusted according to actual requirements within 0 - 120s.
