Star diagram and 3phase wiring? Answered

We are wiring a windgenerator, 3phase? using the star diagram where the 3 coils are wired together, the next 3, and the next three as well. What I do not know is what to do after that. 3 wires tied into 2?? to go to the Batt bank. I am missing something and I do not know what that is or where to get it. Any ideas??


Around the wheel are groups of 3 coils.

ALL of the (negative or positive, whichever, say the inside of the clockwise winding) wires are connected together, that's the star.
the groups (say 4 groups of 3, A, B, C, D = 12 total) have 3 other wires coming off them, A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3....etc

All the '1's connect together (A1, B1, C1, D1), all the '2's and all the 3's connect together.
This leaves the one star wire (unconnected), and 3 phases, 1, 2, and 3. Hook those 3 up to your bridge rectifier (LOOK UP A DIAGRAM FOR THIS)...

Looking like the same sort of thing, this one might give you what you need to know, if not contact the author perhaps?


. You need to find the installation manual or a qualified electrician. Trying to guess how a 3-phase system is wired is just a disaster waiting to happen.
