How to wire your 3 Phase AC Output Wind Turbine to a Battery Bank
Using a 3 Phase Rectifier
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.
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.
