Certification: CE, RoHS and ISO 9001:2000. The Wind Generator is connected to the charge controller, which changes the Alternative Current output by the generator to Direct Current (AC to DC). Electricity generated by the wind turbine are then stored to batteries.
Note: the 12V Batteries above are not included. If your home or farm is connected to the power grid, on windier days you may be able to sell excess power generated by your wind turbine to your utility. This concept is called net metering. Even if net metering is unavailable, you might be able to reduce your power bills by using the electricity generated by wind turbines, and become less dependent on your utility.

Maximum input voltage & current on all terminals: 30V , 40A. Withstand voltage: 35V (anything above will damage controller).
Stand-by power consumption: 0.1W. AC Turbine : For 3 phase AC turbine. The 3 wires from AC turbine can be connected to the terminals in no specific order. Built in rectifier will convert AC to DC.
Can also be connected here as the rectifier accepts DC input as well. LED will turn Green when there is an active input source. DC Turbine : Recommend for Air-X since this terminal has the. LED will not turn on since the Air-X has its own (red) charging LED. LED will turn on when there is power coming in from the inputs.Manual Turbine lock to force dump load to turn on. Pulse Width Modulated Dump Load. Stay-Online Feature to keep Air-X up and running in low battery condition. Night Time Reverse current protection to prevent current going into wind turbine and solar panels. Over current Protection (40A Fuse). Operating output current: 37.5A. Total maximum output current: 40A.
Maximum current on individual output: 30A. Maximum Output Power: 1000W (rated at 27V & 37.5A). Output starts when inputs are above 12.5V. LED will turn Orange with respect to each output.Battery is an input and an output at the same time. LED will turn Blue indicating battery is being charged. Overcharge protection Cut off voltage: 14.7V. Over-discharge protection Cut off voltage: 11.4V. Recommend using deep cycle batteries if possible.
Normal lead acid batteries are acceptable as well. 3 charging modes: Continuous charging, Pulsing, Trickiling.
Mode 1 - Power Supply. When input voltages are lower than the battery's voltage, the battery will act as a supply to all outputs. Power to all outputs will be cut when the battery has drop down to 11.4V. Mode 2 - Stay Online (for Air-X only).
When battery voltage is below 11.4V and input voltages is under 9V, even though all outputs will be cut, the charge controller will still send electrical pulse to the DC input terminal every 5 - 10 seconds as indicated by the pulsing Red. This is necessary for Air-X's internal controller to stay on. Since the Air-X will not wake up on its own, without these pulses, even if wind starts blowing the Air-X will free spin and no power will be generated.
If polarity of battery is incorrect. Requires a minimum of 1.2Ohm 600W resistive load to be connected to the dump load terminal. Dump load activates when AC Turbine is >= 27V. Unlike conventional dump loads that short circuit on activation and drop outputs to zero, the SolarWind Hybrid RX utilizes Pulse-width modulation (PDM) switching technology to only dump what is necessary and conserve the rest. Activating dump load will slow down the AC turbine and reduce voltage spikes.
Over voltage protection: All outputs will be cut when input voltage is over 30V. However dump load will stay on. LED will turn Red when the dump load has been activated. Manual Turbine Lock is used to force dump load to fully turn on (ie: short circuit).Useful when it is necessary to isolate AC wind turbine from the system (ie: during installation or maintenance).

It is highly resistant to abrasion and has excellent resilience. Within nylon, there are two groups: nylon 6 and nylon 6.6. Nylon 6.6 is the. It is the thermoplastic that is most often specified by professional architects and designers because it provides the flexural strength, low-temperature toughness, UV Resistance and is the most resilient. Nylon 6.6 performs well in many applications such as wind turbine blades, automotive parts, and other fields that get a lot of wear and tear.
Nylon 6.6 has additional molecules that give extra strength and the resilience compared to nylon 6. If you still have no idea what Nylon 6.6 is, do a search on google.

Of all the different kinds of renewable energy available today, solar and wind are the two most popular ones favored by homeowners due to their. Easy implementation and wide range of suitable sites. However, these green energy sources do not come with a plug to connect to a wall socket (the grid).Even if they do, there are different parameters for each type of renewable energy and interconnecting with the grid would present a challenge. Fortunately, grid-tie inverters have been invented to solve this interconnection problem. A Grid-Tie Inverter is a device that that can transform 12V DC electricity i. Solar Panels, Wind Turbine, Battery Storage into 120-240V AC power that can be directly injected into your utility's electricity network (the power grid). However, the down side is, most inverters available in the market today are in the high output (1000W 5000W) category.
Their prices range in the thousands and it is just too much of an upfront cost for anyone interested in green energy generation. In addition, because of the high output, a certified electrician will need to be hired to install the equipments and connect the cables.
I would also like to DIY to cut down on cost and have a project that I would be proud to work on... With our latest developed micro grid-tie inverter Grid Power 3 feature the popular plug and play function, you will be connecting your renewable energy sources into the grid and join the green movement in no time.What's New in the 3rd Generation? So you ask, What's new in this third generation?
Well, by reaching the 3rd generation, we have again improved the power output by incorporating Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology to harvest more solar energy. The inverter has also utilized better surge protection components to shield against voltage spikes and energy surges. In addition, this inverter will work with our SolarWind Hybrid RX charge controller to allow wind energy input. Here are the high lights. Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT).What is Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)? MPPT is a techinque we implemented to get the maximum possible power from a solar panel.
When trying to characterize the output of a solar panel mathematically, it can be represented by an IV-Curve (shown below). The equation for Power is P = IV. Where I is the Current , V is the Voltage , and P is the possible output Power. Each point on the curve is a possible combination for output power and our goal is to find the best combination to obtain maximum power.In simple terms, we are trying to get the biggest rectangle to fit under this so called IV-Curve, the bigger rectangle we can fit, the more power we get. Below are graphs to help you understand the idea better. This is a comparison between inverters with and without MPPT on an 85W solar panel. Please note that different solar panels will have slightly different IV-Curves.
Figure 1 No MPPT, with voltage fixed 17.5V P = 17.5V x 4.6A = 80.5W. Figure 2 With MPPT, amount of current and voltage to draw are calculated P = 17V x 4.95A = 84.15W. As we can see, Figure 2 is able to 84.15W with MPPT while in Figure 1, we can only get 80.5W.
This is 4.5% increase in power output. Because solar panels are still quite expensive these days, and the increased power output will directly affect our return on investment (ROI).In addition, depending on weather, time of the day and amount of solar irradiation the panel receives, the IV curve will move along the Y-axis to reflect the possible increase / decrease in potential power output, and cause the maximum power point to shift along as well. Coming up are illustrations to visualize this idea. IV-Curves Under different weather conditions. Sunny, Clear Sky days in Summer 600 1000 W/m2. Scattered Clouds or Partly Cloudy days in Summer 300 600 W/m2.
Cloudy or fog days, dawn or dusk in Summer 100 300 W/m2. Figure 3 - 5 illustrate the power gain in different weather condition with MPPT compare to a non-tracking inverter that locks voltage at 17.5V.
While 17.5V is randomly chosen, it does show what would happen in real life when there is not MPPT. Studies have shown, by making use of MPPT, there will be an average of 30% increase in power production. Since the maximum power point is a variable, we have implemented a tracking algorithm that utilizes the micro processing power of our inverter to calculate the optimum voltage and current to maximize our energy harvest.
In 2008, when we designed the first generation inverter, what we had in mind was an inexpensive device to allow the public to have a chance to test out renewable energy production and promote the green movement at an affordable price range. As people's environmental awareness increased over the years, the demand for bigger systems also increase. Therefore, once again, the power of this inverter has increased by 50% to 600W.
