Making a VAWT generator. Answered
I am after some advice from the experienced wind turbine guys n gals.
I intend building a VAWT and gearing the axle out to get 3000rpm approx. This is to drive 2 or 3 car alternators and charge a battery bank to supply house electricity. I will run as much as poss on 12v but will use a inverter to power tv and fridge. I just want to know would i need a charge controller to make sure the battery banks are protected/not over charged. I am not a electronics lad so would like some advice and what is best and safest way to do this. Many thanks lads n lasses. Bill
