Phase 1 – Designing the Turbine

The Concept
Holistically, my plan was to harness the energy of the wind to generate between 10 – 15volts DC to charge two 12volts 200m Amps Deep cycle batteries which will in turn power my inverter.

On a more detailed level, the logic of the entire system would be to regulate the erratic current supplied by an alternator to a more tolerable band, and feed the current to a bank of batteries, ensuring that as soon as the battery is topped up, the current is diverted to prevent the batteries from frying.

Simple as this plan sounds, it will be fraught with challenges that I hope to share with you on my blog .
