How To Build An Impressive 1000 Watt Wind Turbine
1000 watts is great power for any home. This turbine help charge the battery bank that powers our offgrid home. It’s a permanent magnet alternator, generating 3 phase ac, rectified to dc, and fed to a charge controller.
The great thing about wind turbines is that these bad boys can save your home from having no power at all. When the snow or June Gloom comes and blocks your solar panels or it is just to darn grey for the sun to come out the wind turbine can step up and give you the power you need.
The magnets spin with the wind, the coils are fixed, so no brushes or slip rings necessary. See how to make it below. This is such a great project. I will have a wind turbine and solar one day! Mark my words 🙂
