Missouri Basic 500 watt, 12 or 24 volt, DC output, 5 blade wind turbine for 12 or 24 volt battery charging
Blades begin to spin at only 8 MPH and begin making power immediately!
Our turbines do not "furl" (turn out of the wind) in high winds. Our turbine stays cool with the open face design with blades that are rated to take over 120 mph winds. They just keep on making more power. Furling wind turbines need a very expensive thick and rigid tower that must remain perfectly level for the furling system to work. If something goes wrong with the furling mechanism, the turbine can overspeed, burn up, and, in worst cases, lose its blades! Another system that is prone to failure is mechanical or electrical brakes. Electrical braking shorts out the windings in the turbine motor which causes a near dead halt of the blades and an extreme heat build up in the wind turbine motor. Electrical braking has been known to shear off even new blades of any size.
From experience we found that it is much better to divert the excess power with a diversion charge controller. A proper diversion diversion charge controller such as ours essentially "burns" off excess power from the batteries as it is being made which causes no extra stress on a wind turbine's blades, or motor. The extra energy can be sent to any of our diversion loads such as resistor/heaters, DC water heating elements, DC room heaters, or small inexpensive grid feed inverters. See our inverters category for more information on grid feeding with wind. We do carry these items under their respective categories.
