We have a 2nd hand KISS windgen set ready to be installed and are trying to find out what wire we need (and whether our existing regulator
is man enough). Have searched and searched and not found anything so hoping that since some forumites use KISS that you can help.
The wire currently on it is 11 AWG 4mm sq. However, looking at various tables on the web this seems lighter than would be recommended if the max output is 25A. The maximum distance from the generator
to the batteries would be 10 metres/ 30ft. Some calculations seem to suggest that you measure the round distance (i.e. 20 metres / 60ft). So I am getting calculations which suggest one might even need 2 or 4 AWG.
What wire do you use (over what distance) ?
And if you have regulator
or charge controller what do you use ?
(We are planning to fit a new solar
panel so the regulator/controller would need to be able to cope with the windgen and a panel generating a max of 5A. Our house batteries are 220AH in total.)
Really hope someone can help - I am no electrician !!!!
