Abstract The theoretical calculation of braking indices of pulsars is still an open problem. In this work we present a study on this issue which adapts the model that assumes that pulsars are rotating magnetic dipoles by introducing a compensating component in the energy conservation equation of the system. Such component relates to an effective force that varies with the first power of the tangential velocity of the pulsar's crust. We tested the proposed model using data available
