At the top of your mast is going to require a long run of large wire. Do not fall into the trap of small diameter wire because you will not be happy with the output due to resistance. It really is best to keep the distance between the generator
, charge controller, and house bank as short as you can but at the same time trying to keep the blades in clean air our of reach of people on deck
. I suggest you take a look at at the sunforce 600 watt marine
unit. It is available through west marine
and comes with an MPPT
charge controller. In addition it is 3 phase ac allowing for smaller wire than a DC wind generator
will need. I have installed several of both types now and love the sunforce. Last but not least the customer service
is great. We had a storm recently that sent or unit into permanent protection mode. I called up the company and two days later I had a loaner MPPT land version delivered. They told me there was an issue with the marine MPPT protection logic and said keep the land unit as a spare after we send you the updated marine MPPT. How cool is that?
