This simple switch arrangement provides a safe and easy way of stopping the turbine either during high winds, or for maintenance. When the switch is thrown, the batteries are disconnected and the turbine is ‘shorted’ causing the blades to rotate very slowly.
The Universal Run/Stop Switch is a solution designed to allow the user to brake a turbine “dynamically”. Instead of supplying power to the load, the switch activates a short circuit which effectively brakes the permanent magnet alternator of the turbine. The Switch can also be used with turbines of different manufacture as long as the following characteristics are present:
• 3-phase wild AC, not exceeding 500 V & 16 A
• Wild DC not exceeding 150 V & 10 A
• Mechanically and electrically capable of dynamic braking.
DL-300 Charge Controller
Regulates the way in which your battery is filled – and prevents it from overcharging 12 or 24 Volt batteries by diverting surplus power into a dump load.
Compact and easy to install, it can be used with an LE300 or LE600 micro-turbine. The DL300 was developed especially for Leading Edge Turbines. It incorporates a 300 Watt resistor / heater and controller board in a stout, powder coated, steel enclosure.
Operation and Specification
As the turbine charges the batteries, the State of Charge (SOC) and battery voltage will rise. Once the batteries reach full capacity, the dump load controller begins to bleed power from the turbine into the dump load. This energy is then dissipated as heat into the surrounding environment.
