Using the China GTI’s wind rated, and 4 micro turbines with the inspeed wind meter system. Making wind power simple as i can. It has taken a few years to get…

  1. Larry, How are you? Nice setup. Looks like you tweeked your system a
    little. I’m still running the Chinese GTI’s with the Four 100 watt Renogy
    panels. Its working well putting out decent power. I’m about to finally get
    the 2 other 100 watt panels on my shed for a total of 6 panels. I have 2
    pair tied in series for my 24v GTI rated to 600 watts but when I connect
    the other 2 the GTI faults. So I bought a 12v GTI to handle the other 2.
    Besides I was doing a little R&D to see what was more efficient. My 800
    watt MW&S turbine is doing good but still mounted on the 10ft. conduit. I
    need to finish welding up my mount, then rent an auger to dig the hole. The
    mount is pretty hefty as its going to need to handle an extra 10ft of Sch.
    40 conduit for a total of 20ft and some lateral loads assisted by some
    guide wires. I might make it higher, I just don’t want to draw any
    attention or piss off some neighbors. We’ll see. Glad to see you’re doing
    well, I hope Santa got you and your family all they wanted and that New
    Years was fun.

  2. how does the overvolt work? isn’t the large inverter the same input voltage
    as the small? i blew mine up with in a storm went over 52v. (mine is a 1200
    w 28-52v)
    my 3 phase raptor converts to dc bu i don’t have any way to prevent
    overvoltage. would appreciate any ideas. Regulator?

  3. I enjoyed the visit. I just got done watching all my meters and info
    too.What a sport! We should make 9 or 10 KWh today. Makes winter a lot more
    fun! Andy R.

  4. Awesome set-up you got Larry. Very nice wind production too. What do you
    got on the Enphase system? Right now only got 1.4kw on my Enphase, but
    adding soon.

  5. Thank you for watching. My Enphae system consist of 8 240 w Canadian solar
    panels and 2 230w Schott panels. I have M-215 for the inverters.Like you i
    am always expanding. I havve a few more 240w CS panles to install yet and
    hoping to get more. GO Green.

  6. Your so right, you do need more than one turbine. And wind comes from all
    directions when you have dirty wind. So it really looks good, an all is
    complete for you if you feel it. But you know there’s allways something to
    add or change,lol. Looks good larry and nice chatting with you!!

  7. I wanted to add if you consider the conversion of DC to AC power and
    getting 2100 watts at 30 MPH that is a 20% difference from the total
    combined watts of 2,700 able to be produced. In my opinion these these have
    hit their mark as a whole system combined in a realistic wind speed for my
    particular site.. Thanks again

  8. nice set up have come a long way too.yea man i noticed the wind can
    very from one place to another in the same spot.hay what ever happen with
    the other meters did they work for you?

  9. @TheBillythekid2010 yeah you are right. i am always tweaking and trying new
    meters.lo l it sure is hell is fun.
