We recently put up a WindTura 750. We have a "shack" and large plot of land, but no reasonable way to get power. The shack is about 205' from the tower. We've currently been using a gas generator, but that is loud and not permanent. We have access to a large amount of pallet racking, so we decided to construct a tower, with the main purpose of housing a wind-powered generator. The racking unit itself is 45' tall and the pipe that holds the generator is 15' above that. We're sitting at 60', which is only about 10' above the treeline (we'll trim some trees if it becomes an issue). The pole holding the generator is fed through a larger pipe. We have a winch with a cable connected to the bottom of the generator pole (30' pole, see photo). This allows us to easily maintain the unit, by unsecuring the pole and cranking the winch (see photo). We're using 10/3 w/ GND from the generator to the control box. The control box has a Xantrex C40, with a 900w dump (overkill for now). It has a 12v battery bank and a PowerBright 2300w inverter. Almost everything purchased is from Windy Nation. I've included a design of the control box. Please, any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I'm always up for constructive criticism. We officially completed it on Friday (11/18/11), but have had minimal wind since then. I'm still working out a few kinks, but we're working through it. The lack of wind has hindered my testing. The tower is on a 4 acre man-made, dammed pond (5' dam). We're already designing a hydro power solution, which would be a great compliment. The problem is the distance between everything. The dam is 350' from the tower, the tower is 205' from the shack. I'm not sure the power we would get from the hydro, and if the loss while traveling over 350' would render the whole hydro idea useless. Sorry for the book report. I look forward to hearing from you veterans.
