Thanks for the reply, and I await your info with interest. I just found and read your thread re Air-X failures, and since we've had pretty good luck with ours, had some thoughts.
We too have a large solar
bank (240 watts) in parallel with the wind
gen, but I have only set the regulator
to around 14.7 volts. This does result in the wind
gen shutting down when the system voltage rises, and thus we loose a bit of charging
, but in practice this seems to occur when the batteries (4x T-105's) are nearing full charge, and I've not worried about the losses. So far we have had no electrical
problems with the unit. Did lose a (brand new) blade that fractured during some strong winds, but they replaced it with no questions at all.
Anyhow, I'm wondering if setting the regulator
wide open (despite it being a recommended practice) might have contributed to your problem?
Good luck in the new configuration... sounds interesting!
