OK now for some good news . Waiting for some wind to see how this will all work out. I upgraded my wire from the rectifier to the battery from 8ga to 4 ga. and guess what? That dead spot that my amps will not go up till the wind really picks up got bigger again. :evil: So after thinking about it for a really long night. It dawned on me that maybe adding resistance between the rectifier and the battery would help. :idea: So today I did this. [attachment=0:4qe3qfjc]SeriesSprings.JPG[/attachment:4qe3qfjc] They are 2 14ga 1/2inch diameter one foot long springs stretched to about 3ft. in series. The first one jumped my volts at the turbine from 14v to 18v. Very interesting. The second one added on now the turbine starts at 14v and as the amps come up the turbine goes up to 24v. This happens around 5 amps. At 10amps it is still at 24v. It also took my cut in down a little.This is just for testing. Ohms is under 1. So if anyone wants to try it. I am thinking a 12v 300w dump load resistor at .73 ohms should do the trick.
