If I am checking each leg of Ac at the rectifier where is the proper ground for a accurate reading?
You really can not do it one leg at a time. As the common connection is in the turbine and it is insulated from the case. The only way is to measure between the legs.
Thanks tom and the reading would be the combined volts of the 2 legs?So if you had problems in a wire you could find it in this way?
Yes it will be the combined voltage of both legs. They should all be reading about the same voltage.
Yes if all the voltages are close to the same then the wires coming down from the turbine are OK.
If you have a short the tests will not all be the same. If one line is broken or not connected you should be able to figure out which one.
