How To Wire a 3 Phase AC Wind Turbine to a Battery Bank

Using a 3 Phase Bridge Rectifier

 

How to Wire Your Three Phase Wind Turbine to a Battery Bank

Convert three phase power to DC output
  • AC output wind turbines require a three phase bridge rectifier

  • We recommend using spade terminals and dielectric grease for best quality connections

 
 

Three Phase Rectifier Wiring Diagram


If you have purchased a wind turbine with 3 Phase AC output, you will need to convert the AC output to DC before connecting it to your battery bank.  To do so, the 3 Phase AC wiring from your wind turbine will connect to the 3 terminals at the top of the rectifier and your DC wiring will connect to the positive and negative terminals at the bottom of the rectifier.

We recommend using  3/8″ Spade Terminals for quick, easy connections. Missouri Wind and Solar uses 90 Amp 3 Phase Rectifiers with their 12 and 24 volt wind turbines.

If you are connecting more than one wind turbine to your battery bank, please see our post on  Wiring Two 3 Phase Rectifiers

Please note that this diagram is for reference only.  Please refer to the specific wiring instructions included with your rectifier and/or wind turbine.
