Back emf and basic ESC

hai everyone, i am trying to operate my ROV using an external power supply. but the problem is, the power supply module frequently restarts during the operation. i doubt on the back emf produced by the thrusters since the power supply has protection feature… i am using bluerobotics basic ESC. can anyone suggest a solution?

Hi @sudheeshk,

Please see the following topics:

BasicESC and Reverse Current

New Basic ESC r3 on power supply (no batteries)

The information there should answer your question. You can make your own fork of the BlHeli_S firmware that has active braking disabled, try a capacitor bank/filter, or use a different ESC.
